About “Environmental Missouri”:
Environmental Missouri is the first comprehensive guide to local and state environmental issues involving the air we breathe, the water we drink and the land we inhabit in the Show-Me State. It examines such issues as urban sprawl, polluted streams, radioactive waste, lead contamination, airborne mercury, ozone and smog, noise and light pollution. The book raises questions about wildlife issues: What's with the Asian Carp taking over our rivers? Why are the bees disappearing? When will the Ozark Hellbender revive and thrive?
