Summary

ENVIRONMENTAL SCIENCE will inspire and equip you to make a difference for the world. Featuring sustainability as their central theme, authors Tyler Miller and Scott Spoolman emphasize natural capital, natural capital degradation, solutions, trade-offs, and the importance of individuals. As a result, you will learn how nature works, how you interact with it, and how people have sustained--and can continue to sustain--our relationship with the earth by applying nature's lessons to economies and individual lifestyles. Engaging features like ''Core Case Studies,'' and ''Connections'' boxes demonstrate the relevance of issues and encourage critical thinking. This edition has been updated with new learning tools, the latest content, and an enhanced art program. Two new active learning features conclude each chapter. ''Doing Environmental Science'' offers project ideas based on chapter content that build critical thinking skills and integrate scientific method principles. ''Global Environmental Watch'' offers online learning activities through the Global Environment Watch website, helping students connect the book's concepts to current real-world issues.
