Environmental science

CABI provides comprehensive, up-to-date information on the issues of environmental quality, including pollution and degradation and associated remediation technologies. Current issues, such as biofuels and climate change are also covered.

We collate published information from the world’s scientific literature, and commission relevant books and monographs.
