Rather than the 25 to 30 chapters found in most environmental science textbooks, the authors have limited Principles of Environmental Science: Inquiry and Applications to 15 chapters--perfect for the one-semester, non-majors environmental science course.
True to its title, the goal of this concise text is to provide an up-to-date, introductory view of essential themes in environmental science along with offering students numerous opportunities to practice scientific thinking and active learning.
Principles of Environmental Science covers many environmental issues and problems that have been a part of the ES community for some time, as well as some issues that are newly developing.
It takes a very global look at things and then brings it all together by helping the reader to truly understand the connection the reader has to this global environment.
