for Natural Resource
and Environmental
Managers: A Primer
Lloyd C. Irland
“I have finally found the book that helps me to understand and transmit the importance of ethics
in the environmental sciences.The information contained in this book can provide the
environmental professional with guidance in ethical behavior.As a profession,we need to be sure
that all of our many disciplines understand and act according to ethical precepts.I believe this
book will raise the importance in ethical behavior for all of us.”

“Finally,a book about ethics that provides answers to practical questions across the variety of
professions involved in natural resources.An easy read,with great guidance on every page.More
importantly for foresters it discusses what is meant by the SAF code of ethics – the words left
unsaid or the context for the words that are there.”

“This timely and important book addresses an enduring and significant issue – how to offer
professional services in a just,fair,and ethically responsible manner.This challenge is especially
great in the environmental field,which is often confronted with reconciling the objectives of
natural resource protection with meeting legitimate human needs.As environmental goals
increasingly become a core issue in modern society,this challenge will grow.This book provides
useful and relevant guidance regarding how to act with a sound ethical and moral environmental
compass.”

“Dr.Irland has written a concise and applicable introduction to ethics in natural resources.This
book presents practical insight in ethics issues that most professionals face daily.It is a needed
publication that can be used as a starting point for more detailed studies on ethics in natural

esour
ces.Not very many texts present a clear and concise approach to avoiding ethics violations
in managing na

,but Dr.Irland accomplishes it.I recommend this book to
consultants,managers,educators,scientists,and students.No matter if one is working in the
private or public sector,the information presented is very pertinent and should be required reading
for anyone in natural resources.”
