This concise introduction to environmental science (a shorter alternative to Miller's Living in the Environment, 727 pages) 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 10,000 sources ensure the text's accuracy and currency. During the early 1970's, Miller's texts helped shape and define the environmental science course. Since 1975 Miller's books have been the most widely used environmental science texts in the United States and in the world. His books have been published in five languages and have been used by more than two million students. The book's 414 illustrations are designed to present complex ideas in understandable ways and to relate learning to the real world.
