Pesticides and Pollution (Fontana New Naturalist Series)

 
9780006319443: Pesticides and Pollution (Fontana New Naturalist Series)

Pesticides and Pollution examines the problems of pollution of air, land, river, and the sea, by herbicides, pesticides, sewage, industrial effluents, gases, radiation, leakages, over-drainage, mistakes and mismanagement, in Britain to-day. This edition is exclusive to newnaturalists.com

From an objective and scientific standpoint, Dr. Mellanby examines the problems of pollution of air, land, river, and the sea, by herbicides, pesticides, sewage, industrial effluents, gases, radiation, leakages, over-drainage, mistakes and mismanagement, in Britain to-day. He sets out to placate neither farmers nor naturalists, but to explain in each case what is happening, to point to both dangers and practical necessities, and to discuss what steps should be taken.

Dr. Mellanby is Director of the Nature Conservancy's Monks Wood Experimental Station, was head of the Entomology department at Rothamsted, and for many years before that did research in medical entomology both in Britain and the tropics.

Review:

'Kenneth Mellanby has written a great book. It is calm, logical and dispassionate, but deeply moving and disturbing. When facts can be given with precision, he states them. If he can explain them, he does so: if he cannot, he says so. This book deals with an immense problem - man's pollution of the planet he lives on. It is written with immense understanding and immense fairness. It makes fascinating, absorbing reading.'
British Medical Journal

'Here at last we have a handbook that any emotionally inclined person should study before ranting about chemicals; a dispassionate, well-thought-out reference book. It enables us also to understand some of the problems underlying our survival.'
Country Life

'Dr. Mellanby has written a first-class book which is a delight to read.'
Annals of Applied Biology
