Overview


Environmental Change and Challenge: A Canadian Perspective , Third Edition, is an introduction to the rich, fascinating, and extremely topical field of environmental studies. Well-known and respected geographers Philip Dearden and Bruce Mitchell ground readers in the basic science of ecosystems so that they may knowledgeably explore a host of contemporary environmental issues, such as climate change, oceans and fisheries, forests, agriculture, water, minerals and energy, and endangered species and protected areas.

Throughout, the authors emphasize the interrelationship between human actions and environmental change and bring their field and policy experience to bear on topics with both Canadian and international relevance. The third edition of Environmental Change and Challenge also addresses the philosophies and methods behind planning and management, including management of increasingly stressed urban environments, and concludes with concrete steps for developing solutions for a planet facing complex and ever-changing environmental challenges.
