This concise introduction to environmental science (a shorter alternative to Miller's Living in the Environment) uses basic and easily understandable scientific laws, principles, and concepts to help students understand environmental and resource problems and the possible solutions to these problems. It includes many full-color illustrations and photographs and a writing style that is clear, personal, and lively. Extensive reviewing by hundreds of experts and Miller's careful research covering more than 20,000 sources ensure the text's accuracy and currency. During the early 1970s, Miller's texts helped shape and define the environmental science course. Today, they are best sellers used by thousands of students across the country. This new edition is a major revision--the most extensive since the first edition was published. Each chapter is thoroughly revised and some detail has been added. The book's 460 illustrations are designed to present complex ideas in understandable ways and to relate learning to the real world.

"Miller has written and rewritten the standard to which all other environmenta science texts are compared."
"Tyler Miller's books.... rank among the best available worldwide. Whenever a new edition comes out, I grab it forthwith, whereupon I become yet more amazed that he can maintain such a hyper-high standard of work. In fact, I have just one basic reaction to Miller: right on, write on!"
