The Soil and Water Conservation Society’s Soil and Water Conservation Glossary was first published in 1952 under the direction of Arnold J. Baur. It has been revised, expanded, and reprinted as the Resource Conservation Glossary in 1970, 1976, and 1982. This fourth edition sees a name change to Environmental Management Glossary, which reflects the expansion of the soil and water conservation field of study.
