Summary

Environmental Science: A Global Concern, Eleventh Edition, is a comprehensive presentation of environmental science which emphasizes critical thinking, environmental responsibility, and global awareness. This book is intended for use in a one- or two-semester course in environmental science, human ecology, or environmental studies at the college or advanced placement high school level.We have updated data throughout the chapters in this book. Information and examples presented are the most recent available as of the mid-2009. You will find an abundance of specific numbers and current events details that are difficult to keep up-to-date in a textbook.The goal of this book is to provide an up-to-date, introductory global view of essential themes in environmental science along with emphasis on details and case studies that will help students process and retain the general principles. The authors make the text readable and accessible without technical jargon or a presumption of prior science background.
