UK Kirkus Review » This dictionary is not flashy with colour illustrations and layouts but, in this handy, one-volume size, it may be the best and most useful of environmental reference works. The level is suitable for adult or university students, and there are good references under most selections for further reading. Black-and-white diagrams and photographs give helpful directions. Everything is explained clearly, with good cross references, and a detailed name and subject index. Guaranteed to become well worn. (Kirkus UK)
