A SELF-TEACHING GUIDE

Learn environmental science at your own pace

Where does Earth's energy come from? What is the environmental impact of fishing? How does the natural greenhouse effect work? What causes plate motion? With Environmental Science: A Self-Teaching Guide, you'll discover the answers to these questions and many more about this complex, everevolving field.

This thorough primer presents an easy-to-follow, proven method for grasping the basics of environmental science, from the water cycle and air pollution to environmental management and alternative energy sources. Focusing on the scientific aspects of the study of the environment, the text integrates key concepts from biology, geology, chemistry, and physics, covering both natural systems and human influences. The clearly structured format of Environmental Science makes it fully accessible, providing an easily understood, comprehensive overview for everyone, from students to professionals in fields that have been affected by environmental change.

Like all Self-Teaching Guides, Environmental Science allows you to build gradually on what you have learned—at your own pace. Questions and self-tests reinforce the information in each chapter and allow you to skip ahead or focus on specific areas of concern. Packed with useful, up-to-date information, this clear, concise volume is a valuable learning tool and reference for anyone interested in learning more about—and in preserving—our green home.
