Writing in clear prose, Ralph Scott offers a complete introduction to physical geography in a concise paperback. It contains well-balanced, well-illustrated coverage of the major themes of physical geography: the characteristics, interdependence, and global distribution of the earth's major physical features (weather and climate, natural vegetation, soils, and landforms). The process-oriented approach, with an emphasis on systems, shows how the Earth is a single, functioning entity. An emphasis on North America characterizes this edition. Biogeography, particularly ecosystems and food chains, is covered in detail in two chapters.
