Publisher Comments:

Environmental Science students embarking on their courses in this fast changing area will find this primer to be an essential companion, for it provides a wide-ranging, up-to-date summary of all the crucial issues and concepts of which they will need to be aware. -Andrew Goudie, University of OxfordThis unique addition to reference literature provides an introduction to the major concepts and contemporary issues that are essential for students of environmental science and environmental studies to know.

With over 200 entries authored by world-class names like Anthony Brazel, John Day and Edward Keller, this text is divided into six sections: Environmental ScienceEnvironmentsParadigms & ConceptsProcesses & DynamicsScales & TechniquesEnvironmental Issues

Intended Audience: Environmental Science: A Student's Companion will be widely used throughout degrees in Environmental Science, Environmental Studies and Geography.Exhaustive but not exhausting, this primer on the environmental sciences and environmental studies is the educated layperson's essential storehouse of knowledge for understanding the world around us and the sciences that investigate it. This compendium is the essential intellectual tool box for understanding the greatest challenge of the twenty-first century: the relationship between human society and the natural world that supports us. Written in a lively fashion that will appeal to the environmental neophyte as well as to the expert, this work appeals not to the lowest common denominator, but rather to the highest common denominator. No educated person would think of trying to live a productive life without knowing the multiplication table, and notwentieth-century citizen should try to live an environmentally responsible life without the knowledge in this classic work. -William L. Graf, University of South Carolina
