Summary

Miller's SUSTAINING THE EARTH, 6th Edition is a science-based book designed for introductory courses in environmental science. In this edition Miller has added an on-line Web based resource, which is updated quarterly with articles from InfoTrac College Edition, CNN® Today Video Clips, and animations. With this electronic Resource Integration Guide, instructors seamlessly utilize current news articles and up-to-the minute research findings to support classroom instruction. This groundbreaking addition integrates nearly 100 engaging animations and interactions with chapter summaries, flashcards, and Web based quizzes. Organized by chapter, students will find links to relevant resources, narrated animations, interactive figures and prompts to review material and test themselves. This text differs from Miller's comprehensive text, LIVING IN THE ENVIRONMENT, 13th Edition, in the amount of detail and chapter order. For example, the following topics have been integrated into single chapters: human population dynamics and urban problems are in Chapter 5, nonrenewable and renewable energy resources are in Chapter 6, terrestrial and aquatic biodiversity are in Chapter 7, climate change, ozone depletion, and air pollution are in Chapter 11, water resources and water pollution are in Chapter 12, solid and hazardous waste are in Chapter 13, and environmental economics, politics, and worldviews are in Chapter 14. Miller has remained true to his hallmark features including high quality end-of-chapter questions, an orientation toward prevention, an integration of Web resources and video, and a balanced presentation of controversial environmental issues and solutions.
