[[abstract]]The purposes of this study were to investigate the influential factors of environmental behaviors and examine the environmental behaviors of the junior high school students in Pingtung after one month. The sample (n=386) was selected by stratified cluster sampling. Data were collected by self-administered questionnaires, and analyzed using SAS8.1 for Two-way repeated-measures analysis of variance, Pearson product-moment Correlations, Multiple linear regression analysis and Multiple-linear regression analysis with dummy variables. The results of this research were as follows: 1.The most performance of environmental behaviors toward subjects was Eco-management, the more was Consumer/economic action, and the least was Persuasion. 2.The frequency of environmental behaviors performed by different grades subjects was significantly different. 3.The 24.47﹪variance of intention toward environmental behavior could be explained by knowledge of problem, perceived knowledge of environmental action strategies, perceived skill in using environmental action strategies, locus of control, environmental responsibility, environmental sensitivity, and environmental attitude. However, only environmental sensitivity, and perceived skill in using environmental action strategies were the powerful predictors. 4.When demographic variables and situational factors were kept under control, the intention to Eco-management, Consumer/economic action, and Persuasion were still powerful predictors toward the environmental behaviors. Recommendations of researches and education toward environmental behaviors in the future were presented at the end of this thesis.
