Summary

The first edition of Environment: The Science behind the Stories made the biggest splash of any new entry in environmental science over the past thirty years. The newly revised Second Edition retains all the popular features of this landmark first edition--including its integrated central case study approach, and focus on current data and critical thinking--while new instructor resources make it easier than ever to give dynamic lectures.
