THE APPLICATION OF SCIENCE IN ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT ASSESSMENT
by Aaron J. MacKinnon, Peter N. Duinker and Tony R. Walker

This
book begins by defining an appropriate role for science in EIA. From
here it goes on to reflect more closely on empirical and deductive
biophysical sciences as they relate to well-known stages of the generic
EIA process and explores whether scientific theory and practice ar at
their vanguard in EIA and related applications. Based on this review,
the book concludes that improvements to the quality of science in EIA
will rely on the adoption of stronger participatory and collaborative
working arrangements.
