Complete Source List for Environment Abstracts (26/7/06)
LN Australia says:  I understand it would cover those universities which offer environmental science (or equivalent) as a bachelor degree or postgrad. They would normally have an environmental science school or would be under the faculty of science. Most universities would have something like a BSc in Enviromental Science  or a Bachelor of applied Science in environmental studies. It's a pretty loose term, so we're open to what universities need and require for their specific studies. (21/7/06)
