A Companion to Environmental Geography is the first book to comprehensively and systematically map the research frontier of 'human-environment geography' in an accessible and comprehensive way.
* * Cross-cuts several areas of a discipline which has traditionally been seen as divided; presenting work by human and physical geographers in the same volume
* Presents both the current 'state of the art' research and charts future possibilities for the discipline
* Extends the term 'environmental geography' beyond its 'traditional' meanings to include new work on nature and environment by human and physical geographers - not just hazards, resources, and conservation geographers
* Contains essays from an outstanding group of international contributors from among established scholars and rising stars in geography
