Overview

"Basics of Environmental Science is an introduction to environmental study. The book offers everyone studying and interested in the environment, an essential understanding of natural environments and the way they function. It covers the entire breadth of the environmental sciences, providing concise, non-technical explanations of physical processes and systems and the effects of human activities." "In this second edition, the scientific background to major environmental issues is clearly explained. These include global warming, genetically modified foods, desertification, acid rain, deforestation, human population growth, depleting resources and nuclear power generation. There are also descriptions of the 10 major biomes."--BOOK JACKET.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Allaby introduces general readers and, presumably, beginning students, though he does not say so, to most of the topics included under the general heading: earth sciences, physical resources, biosphere, biological resources, and environmental management. Each of the six chapters can be read independently, which makes for a certain degree of overlap. He has updated the 1996 first edition to incorporate new controversies, especially the debate over the safety and desirability of genetically modified foods; new information that has become available; and more web sites for deeper study. The glossary does not indicate pronunciation. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
