9780470049907: Environmental Science: Earth as a Living Planet, 6th Edition

For more than two decades, Botkin has been active in the application of ecological science to environmental management. Updated and revised to include the latest research in the field, the new Sixth Edition of Environmental Science continues to present a balanced analytical and interdisciplinary approach to the field. This approach equips readers with a solid scientific background in environmental science, so they can think through environmental issues and make their own decisions. Five central themes are weaved throughout the book: Human Population Growth, Sustainability, A Global Perspective, An Urban World, and Science and Values.

From the Publisher:

Written by active scientists, this timely book helps readers understand how to think about the environment--not what to think. Incorporates five integrating themes: a global perspective, human population, sustainability, the urban world and values, knowledge and social justice. Each chapter begins with a case study that illustrates the topics discussed.

From the Back Cover:

The tools to help students make their own decisions about the environment Along with this text, students can choose from two supplements that will help them in their studies of environmental issues. These include: Take Note! Inside this convenient notebook, students will find a collection of figures, diagrams, and art that clearly illustrate key concepts featured in this text. Next to each figure, they'll be able to take notes in the space provided during the class. Not only does this save time, but it also makes a great study aid for exams! Regional Casebooks Students can enhance their studies of environmental issues by examining the case studies featured in the Cascbooks available for Northeast, Central, Southeast, Western U.S. and Canada. each casebook contains real-world examples that illustrate the general concepts featured in this text, along with questions that help reinforce the material. Student Review Guide Chapters will have an overview, frequently asked questions, practice questions, and web links.
