Environmental Issues Leaflets
The Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) have published a number of briefing notes and brochures which give excellent insights into some of the big environmental issues such as climate change, natural hazards, sustainable use of this planet's resources, biodiversity and pollution.
Two of these brochures are provided in this collection:
• Biodiversity - looking at how human activities threaten the natural environment, endangering species and habitats and what we are doing about the problem.
• Changing climates, evolving humans - considers how environmental factors have affected human evolution.
HEALTH and SAFETY
Any use of a resource that includes a practical activity must include a risk assessment. Please note that collections may contain ARCHIVE resources, which were developed at a much earlier date. Since that time there have been significant changes in the rules and guidance affecting laboratory practical work. Further information is provided in our Health and Safety guidance.
