This text provides environmental scientists with a better understanding of global human geography because of its visual approach. The narrative and concepts are tightly linked to visual elements, including practical examples that highlight the relevance of the concepts. Maps are integrated throughout to help reveal patterns or trends. Divergent views and critical thinking are emphasized. Photographs and other visuals are also included to reinforce the concepts. With this approach, environmental scientists will gain a strong foundation for thinking geographically as they develop the skills for interpreting and analysing their world.
