CAREERS IN ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION

Aimed at young people who would like to make a career of cleaning up the environment but aren't really sure what an ecologist does, this is a rundown of environmental protection occupations on the levels of the professional and technician. Millard begins with a few general examples of research projects in pollution control, federal monitoring services and industrial innovations, but the many brief job descriptions of specialties such as industrial hygienist, horticulturalist, geodesist and soil conservation aid are framed in arid generalities which give little real idea of the actual content of the work or the degree of responsibility involved, and the specifics on entry requirements and job prospects are minimal. This comprehensive guide will serve its purpose by bringing lesser known types of work to its readers' attention -- but it will be up to them to follow up Millard's lists of addresses and further reading and find out which slot really suits their interests.
