It is based on a restricted literature search and subsequent analysis of some 50 papers, limited time and resources not permitting a more exhaustive study, and the authors intending rather to divide the field roughly into topical areas, to provide an example problem for each, and to point to some references for further reading. In short, the sole ambition of this paper is to give the reader a guided tour (or random walk) through the "OR and environment" territories thus far charted. The authors hope to interest the "environmental world" in OR, and the "OR world" in environmental problems.
