The Energy and Environment Glossary, 1977.
Jones, John; Dalton, Edward
This is a glossary of words that commonly appear in energy education and environmental education materials. With over 750 words ranging from "abatement" to "zooplankton" this publication includes some uncommon terms such as "anadromous,""film badge,""putrescible," and "tritium." Space is provided after each alphabetical section for the addition of words not included in the publication. This publication seems to have been written for use by upper elementary and junior high school students. The definitions are non-technical and, where appropriate, include comments on how the term relates to environmental issues. This glossary should also be useful to teachers. (MR)
