Summary

Significant advances have occurred in recent years in Europe and in North America in addressing agri-environmental policies, but whilst important institutional and legal differences still exist between the two continents, the sharing of recent scientific advances will benefit scientists on both sides of the Atlantic. This is the main purpose of this book.
