"A notable addition to the growing academic interest in how we can design ecological studies to assess the impacts of human activities."
"This excellent book provides an intelligent and comprehensive overview of the state of the art and science of ecological impact assessment as it is currently practiced and, more importantly, how it should be practiced if the goal of the exercise actually is environmental protection. In short, Detecting Ecological Impacts should be read by everyone concerned with the environment and will be of particular use to all who might be called upon to engage in either the development or the evaluation of environmental or ecological impact statements and assessments."
