9781464112478: Loose-leaf Version for Environment: Science, Issues, Solutions

Written by bestselling author Manuel Molles and acclaimed science journalist Brendan Borrell, this new textbook gives non-major students the scientific foundation they need to understand environmental issues and think critically about possible solutions. Molles and Borrell make clear the connections between research and real-world problems with a "science/issues/solutions" framework for each chapter. This unique approach reinforces a positive, solutions-based framework for the science, empowering students to feel that they can have an impact on preserving biodiversity, protecting natural resources, addressing pollution hazards, confronting climate change, and more.

Environment: Science, Issues, Solutions is accompanied by its own dedicated version of LaunchPad, an online course space bringing together all of the book’s teaching and learning media, including graphing exercises, assignable video activities, and more. Together, the text and LaunchPad provide a seamless learning experience for students, and a reliable assessment mechanism for instructors and programs.
