Student Projects in Environmental Science provides an accessible introduction to the key stages involved when undertaking a research project. Beginning with a discussion of what constitutes research, the book shows how to develop and plan a feasible research topic based upon a testable hypothesis. It then stresses the importance of logical experimental design that facilitates the use of appropriate statistical treatment of data so that the research questions posed may be answered.

To reinforce key points, use is made throughout of illustrative case studies covering a wide range of topics. The book develops student understanding of what statistical tests are appropriate to use when analyzing their data, and offers practical guidance on how these may be conducted using widely used commercially available software such as Excel, Minitab, and SPSS.

An invaluable text for undergraduates and Masters level students taking courses in Environmental Science and Physical Geography.

  • The only text to cover generic project issues such as research planning/resource management and specialist environmental science material in one book.
  • Takes a case-study approach to illustrate the range of environmental science topics that students may encounter with cases supplied by specialists in the field.
  • Practical worked examples and self-assessment tasks illustrate key statistical and mathematical points so as to keep heavy theory to a minimum.
