Description

Partnering with National Geographic Learning, Miller and Spoolman deliver a text that equips students with the inspiration and knowledge to help solve modern environmental issues. ENVIRONMENTAL SCIENCE, 16th Edition, highlights important work of scientists and citizens, while photos, maps and illustrations bring course content to life. A concept-centered approach transforms complex topics into key concepts students understand. Using sustainability as their central theme, the authors emphasize natural capital, natural capital degradation, solutions, trade-offs and the importance of individuals. Students learn how nature works, how they interact with it and how humanity can continue to sustain its relationship with the earth by applying nature's lessons to economies and individual lifestyles. Available with MindTap, the platform that gives instructors complete control of their course and powers students from memorization to mastery.

 

 

Features

  • A Core Case Study opens each chapter and is integrated throughout, with special notations highlighting where text concepts are applied to the case. Every chapter ends with a "Tying It All Together" box connecting the Core Case Study and other chapter material to principles of sustainability.
  • Five major subthemes are integrated throughout: Sustainability depends on natural resources and ecosystem services that support all life and economies. Human activities can degrade natural capital. Solutions to environmental problems are presented throughout, and students are challenged to critically evaluate them. Trade-offs are involved in the search for solutions and require weighing advantages against disadvantages; trade-offs diagrams spotlight specific environmental problems. Individuals Matter boxes and Case Studies describe the sustainability work of scientists and citizens.
  • Complementing the 17 Core Case Studies, more than 40 additional Case Studies are included throughout to provide in-depth evaluations of specific environmental problems and their possible solutions.
  • The Learning Skills section describes critical thinking skills, while specific critical thinking exercises throughout the book give students hands-on experience putting what they learn into practice.
  • "Thinking About" exercises included in most chapters reinforce learning by asking students to think critically about the implications of various environmental issues and solutions immediately after they are discussed in the text.
  • End-of-chapter materials help students maximize their study time: Detailed review questions include all chapter key terms in bold. Critical Thinking questions encourage students to apply what they learn to their own lives. Doing Environmental Science exercises help students experience the work of various environmental scientists. Data Analysis and Ecological Footprint Analysis problems are built around ecological footprint and other environmental data sets.

Individuals Matter boxes and Case Studies describe the sustainability work of scientists and citizens.
  • The text's unique concept-centered approach helps students zero in on the main ideas. Each major chapter section revolves around a key question and one to three key concepts, which state the section's most important take-away messages.
  • The text emphasizes a global perspective on both the ecological level--revealing how all the world's life is connected and sustained within the biosphere--and through the use of information and images from around the world--with more than 40 maps included in the basic text and available digitally. End-of-chapter Global Environment Watch exercises further apply this international perspective.
