Ethylene oxide is a colorless, highly reactive gas at room temperature and pressure. Almost all of ethylene oxide produced is used in the manufacture of ethylene glycol, but some amount is used as a sterilant for health care materials and other heat-sensitive products. Ethylene oxide is an alkylating agent and forms protein and DNA adducts. Based on studies in animals, cancer is considered the critical end-point for effects of ethylene oxide on human health for long-term exposure of the general population.--Publisher's description

9 editions published in 1978 in English and held by 351 libraries worldwide
Forest and woodlands form the natural type of vegetation cover in most of the humid and subhumid parts of the tropical world. They are important for many reasons, not least because of their role in meeting man's needs for timber, food and other economic, environmental and socio-cultural values. For many developing conuntries, the wise use of the resources provided by tropical forests, and the balanced rural development of zones covered by them, lie at the heart of their national development strategies and programmes

Global environment outlook 4 : environment for development by United Nations Environment Programme( Book )
16 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 313 libraries worldwide
The fourth report in the Global Environment Outlook (GEO) series from the United Nations Environment Program (UNEP) provides a comprehensive, scientifically credible, policy-relevant and up-to-date assessment of, and outlook for, the state of the global environment. GEO-4 is published 20 years after the World Commission on Sustainable Developments Bruntland Report of 1987. Environment for Development is the GEO-4 underlying theme and the report pays special attention to the role and impact of the environment on human well-being as well as to the use of environmental valuation as a tool for decision-making. GEO-4's specialized report, the Summary for Decision Makers is an essential guide for policy-makers. Both publications are excellent tools for teaching and research and relevant in the field of international environmental governance as they highlight policy opportunities for a more sustainable approach to economic growth and development.--Publisher's description

Soils on a warmer earth : effects of expected climate change on soil processes, with emphasis on the tropics and sub-tropics by H. W Scharpenseel( Book )
5 editions published between 1990 and 1998 in English and held by 228 libraries worldwide
The theme of this book is a far reaching one and should attract great interest, both in industrialized as well as in less developed countries. Although the question of climate change and its effects on soil productivity is overshadowed by so many current events, it is almost certain that this subject will remain on the international agenda for the years to come; not only as science and research are concerned but also in relation to development policies, agricultural policies and others, especially since poor, rich, developed and developing countries are equally threatened by these problems
