It is the only planet in our solar system that has the components necessary to support life as we recognize it. The planet is only a tiny part of the universe but it is the home of human beings and many other organisms. Animals and plants live almost everywhere on the surface of earth. Perhaps the most amazing feature of our planet is the rich diversity of the life that exists here. Millions of beautiful and intriguing species populate the earth and help sustain a habitable environment. This vast multitude of life creates complex interrelated communities where towering trees and huge animals live together with and depend upon tiny life forms such as viruses bacteria and fungi. Environmental science is the systematic study of our environment and our proper place in it. A relatively new field environmental science is highly interdisciplinary integrating natural sciences social sciences and humanities in a broad holistic study of the world around us. In contrast to more theoretical disciplines environmental science is mission oriented. That is it seeks new valid contextual knowledge about the natural world and our impacts on it but obtaining this information creates a responsibility to get involved in trying to do something about the problems we have created. 398 pp. Bookseller Inventory # 51202
