Part of the Salem science collection, the Encyclopedia of Global Resources surveys more than 200 natural resources, along with major producers and technologies, in this comprehensive, four-volume set. Essays also address the global economic impact of our natural resources. Filled with dozens of tables, charts, photos and appendixes, this set will be an asset to any science collection.
Multidisciplinary by nature, GreenFILE draws on the connections between the environment and a variety of disciplines such as agriculture, education, law, health and technology. Topics covered include global climate change, green building, pollution, sustainable agriculture, renewable energy, recycling, and more. The database provides indexing and abstracts for more than 612,000 records, as well as Open Access full text for more than 9,100 records.
