About the book

Humans have always managed their environments, but modern environmental management is based on the development of models that reflect our understanding about how humans relate to nature. Environmental management is a constantly changing decision-making process that is driven by our capacities to identify problems and rectify the problems based upon data that inform our perspectives. Professional environmental managers employ an array of technologies to measure, monitor, and manage the components of our environments to achieve the goals that businesses, organizations, and agencies deem important.

This volume will include studies of the many facets of environmental management that scholars offer from all disciplinary perspectives, about all types of environmental management, occurring anywhere in the world. The desire is to produce a text that offers a diversity of experiences and highlights many perspectives about environmental management of the past, present, and future.

The chapters can feature studies: in which people must be managed to improve environmental quality; where nature must be managed to fit human environmental needs and desires; when environments must be monitored to maintain and guide environmental management; when modeling provides key insights to predict and respond to environmental issues; where environments or systems must be restored before environmental management can proceed to maintain desired conditions; or where the processes of environmental management have failed, broken down, or generated other management problems. Virtually any topic related to environmental management is likely to fit within the conversations promoted in this book.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Marijana Francetic

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
