Ecological and environmental education in schools and institutes of further and higher education has gained increasing importance in recent years, both as an area of study in its own right, and as a component of other disciplines. There is now a requirement in many countries to include the environment in both formal and informal curricula. This volume presents a long overdue account of the status, progress and underlying concepts of ecological education. It explores areas of recent development and debate in ecological and environmental education, describes the evolution and development of environmental education in different countries and examines the importance and provision for fieldwork. Case studies illustrate how ecological studies are undertaken in several culturally different settings. This book will interest teachers and research workers in ecology, environmental science and education.
