Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

With the same non-biased approach, this briefer version of Environmental Science: Foundations and Applications keeps the focus on critical thinking and quantitative reasoning, teaching students to distinguish between emotional and factual arguments by always looking at the evidence. By learning how to analyze graphs, and measure environmental impact on various scales, students will be able to interpret the wealth of data they will encounter as citizens, professionals, and consumers. 
 
Essentials of Environmental Science:
Is the ideal length for the one-semester course (15 chapters—one chapter per week)
 
Is more accessible than the bigger book in its level of mathematics (the big book feature, Crunch the
Numbers, which allows students to practice calculations, does not appear in this version).
 
Offers the Science Applied and Engage My Environment features from the big book in EnviroPortal
 
Streamlines the coverage of ecology, agriculture, energy and water to provide a more focused treatment of the science concepts.

Synopsis:

At just 15 chapters, Essentials of Environmental Science is ideal for a one-semester course. It takes the same non-biased approach as its parent text, teaching students to think critically about data presented. In addition to being briefer, Essentials is even more accessible placing less emphasize on math calculations. The coverage of ecology, agriculture, energy, and water has also been streamlined to provide a more focused treatment of the science concepts.
