Environmental Sciences Publications 2009Annually the federal Environmental Science researchers at EPA Las Vegas publish between 20-35 refereed journal articles and 5-10 peer-reviewed book chapters. Through its extramural programs, EPA funds research undertaken in the private sector. As a result, the scientific community, at-large, is provided with extensive, current research information. A bibliography of EPA's most recent Environmental Sciences publications is listed below.
