Environmental Science offers online, inquiry-based learning using RAMAS® software (published by Applied Biomathematics). The textbook and lab exercises grew out of an initial collaborative effort by a number of people, both at Applied Biomathematics and Stony Brook University, with subsequent additions and substantial revisions by Karen V. Root.
This introductory-level online environmental science textbook with labs focuses on specific environmental issues and the scientific approaches used to address them, employing an inquiry-based, hands-on approach. Students learn to:
*appreciate the importance of uncertainty and risk in the practice and interpretation of science
*explore the science, economics, and policies of prevailing issues in the environment, and
*discover how human activities drive rapid evolutionary changes which require science-based management strategies.
Intended for introductory college courses on environmental science and related topics, the book employs a modular design and each chapter is accompanied by a lab that includes up to three interactive computer exercises with discussion questions for students to explore. Web links point to relevant data sets and reference additional material to increase the depth of coverage of specific topics and serve as a starting point for class research papers.
