This concise introduction to environmental science uses basic and easily comprehendible scientific laws, principles, and concepts to help students understand environmental and resource problems and possible solutions to these problems. It is a shorter alternative to Miller's LIVING IN THE ENVIRONMENT (which is 864 pages long). 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. The book's 412 illustrations are designed to present complex ideas in understandable ways and to relate learning to the real world. 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 the world. His books have been published in five languages and have been used by more than two million students.

Review:

"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!"
