Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The critical importance of environmental preservation is apparent to everyone. The issues facing us today, be they global warming, the depleting ozone layer, the controversy over nuclear power, or the continuing problems of water pollution and solid waste disposal, are headline news. Environmental Science: Systems and Solutions, Fourth Edition, offers the basic principles necessary to understand and address these multi-faceted and often very complex current environmental concerns. The book provides a comprehensive overview and synthesis of environmental science and provides the basic factual data necessary to understand the environment as it is today. It is important that students understand how various aspects of the natural environment interconnect with each other and with human society. Using a systems approach, the authors have organized complex information in a way that highlights these connections in a fair and unbiased fashion. A Study Guide is incorporated at the end of each chapter to help reinforce concepts and provide a clear overview of material.

Book News Annotation:

McKinney (environmental studies, University of Tennessee-Knoxville) uses a systems approach to highlight the ways in which aspects of the natural environment interconnect with each other and with human society. Emphasis is on sustainable technologies and economic systems. The book is written to be accessible to beginning nonmajor undergraduates, with enough depth to be used in a majors course in either environmental studies or environmental science. Pedagogical features include review questions, exercises requiring readers to review the authors' arguments, calculation exercises (written at a pre-calculus level or lower), and data interpretation questions. The art program features high-interest color photos and explanatory diagrams. The text's companion web site contains selected major pieces of US and international environmental legislation, and a list of environmental organizations and government agencies. This fourth edition features new case studies, and expanded coverage of topics such as global climate change and biodiversity. Annotation ©2007 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
