Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 7 Up-Based on Macmillan's Encyclopedia of Earth Science (1996; o.p.), this handsome, authoritative resource covers the physics, chemistry, and biology of Earth and space. The alphabetically arranged articles begin with brief definitions, explain basic concepts, outline natural processes, and conclude with cross-references to other articles. Coverage includes geological structure and landforms, oceanography, atmospheric sciences, biology and paleontology, and astronomy, with separate articles on careers in these and related fields. The articles on controversial topics, such as the causes of global warming, are balanced but point to scientific consensus. The set provides just enough detail to satisfy the interest of serious students while providing colorful pictures and accounts of interesting personalities to attract browsers. Most entries are illustrated with one or two full-color or black-and-white photographs or diagrams with informative captions. Although the thematic bibliography in the last volume lists useful readings, the articles do not guide readers to it, weakening the usefulness of the set. The UXL Encyclopedia of Science (1997) covers some of the same topics in comparable detail, but lacks the color photos. The bibliography includes long-lived Web sites and CD-ROMs as well as books. Earth Sciences would be well used in schools with strong science programs.- Jonathan Betz-Zall, Sno-Isle Regional Library System, Edmonds, WA Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.|
This four-volume reference presents the content from the at a level appropriate for students in grades five and up. Organized alphabetically by topic, the 300 articles provide a complete overview of the earth sciences curriculum, covering the Earth from its core to its surface and incorporating an interdisciplinary approach that includes relevant sciences such as oceanography, atmospheric sciences, biology, paleontology, physics, chemistry, astronomy and others. In addition, some of the articles focus on people, career opportunities and topics in the news, such as the search for extraterrestrial life and women pioneers in earth science. Other features include defined vocabulary right on the page and sidebars highlighting related facts and issues in the news. Contains 200 color illustrations. Annotation c.
