It is the policy of the federal Canadian Forestry Service to
sponsor research initiatives from the private sector that are
judged to be pertinent to its mandate and offer particular promise
towards the optimal management of Canadian forest resources. This
book is based on such an initiative. It represents the philosophy
of the author himself and is in no way constrained by the views of
the sponsoring agency. Over the past two decades Dr J. A. C.
Fortescue has become well known at a number of research centers
throughout the world. He has pioneered the approach to
environmental understanding that is comprehensively developed in
this text. The limitations of traditional compartmentalized
approaches are depre cated and the case is made for a holistic
rethinking of basic concepts and princi ples. Landscape
Geochemistry is the disciplinary outcome that gives expression to
this rethinking. It may be viewed as the minimum scale of
conceptual approach necessary in the environmental sciences to
solve present-day problems and to exploit future opportunities."
