An environmental studies text written for geographers by geographers

Offering a true geographic approach to environmental issues, this Third Edition of William Marsh and John Grossa’s ENVIRONMENTAL GEOGRAPHY: SCIENCE, LAND USE, AND EARTH SYSTEMS examines human-related environmental issues in the context of the processes and systems of physical geography.

Throughout, the authors emphasize traditional themes of geography, such as the concept of an integrated planet; the principles of space, scale, and distributions; the idea of landscape as a human-environmental interplay; and the perspective of earth as a dynamic planet with many environmental opportunities, constraints, and risks.

Now updated and revised, this Third Edition features:

  • A continuing theme of sustainability, with more emphasis on efforts by governments, corporations, private organizations, and individuals that are showing promise in bringing us into balance with the planet.
  • 16 new case studies, 12 of which deal with sustainability issues.
  • A revised organization. The first five chapters have been rearranged to provide a better flow of topics from issues and perspectives, to environmental foundation material, to factual matter on the condition of earth and its people.
  • New material in several chapters, including the increasing role of NGO's in working out solutions to environmental problems from the global to the local level.
  • Thoroughly updated statistics on population, energy, and food production.
  • Revised graphics, including dozens of new photos.
