Overview

ENVIRONMENTAL SCIENCE, 11th Edition, boasts an unparalleled coverage of sustainability, basic science, and bias-free comparisons, within a flexible chapter organization and supported by the strongest media tools and illustration program available. New media to this edition includes: "How Would You Vote?" found at http://biology.brookscole.com/miller11. This is an application of 68 provocative environmental issues covered in the text. Students investigate the issues in a structured manner, and then cast their votes on the Web where the results are tallied; Environmental ScienceNow, a learning tool that helps students assess their study needs through pretests, post-test, personalized learning plans and "How Do I Prepare," which aides students in basic math, chemistry and graphing review; and InfoTrac College Edition, a library of full text articles; PowerLecture for Miller's Environmental Science, 11th Edition. This one-stop PowerPoint Tool contains robust, preloaded PowerPoint lecture images organized by every chapter. PowerLecture contains: animations that bring key topics and concepts to life; a slide-sorting view for each chapter that lets you select, copy and paste slides into your PowerPoint lecture; the ability to select a piece of a figure and enlarge it; labels in text boxes that you can edit, remove, or present one label at a time; quick access to animations and videos—if a PowerPoint slide contains a green button, just click on it to show a related animation; Instructor's Manual and associated chapter outlines; and Test Bank—a complete electronic file of test items.

Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
This ninth edition places increased emphasis on science-based approaches that interact with political solutions to address environmental problems, offers greater integration of economic and environmental topics, and stresses the shift from large centralized sources of power to a dispersed array of smaller micropower plants. There are two new chapters on community ecology and geology, and expanded coverage of aquatic biodiversity. Tyler is president of Earth Education and Research, and professor of human ecology at St. Andrews Presbyterian College. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
Booknews
An introductory college level text on environmental science, illustrated with a plethora of interesting color photographs, maps, and charts. The text's five sections address an overview of humans and the issue of sustainability; scientific principles and concepts; the issues of resources and sustainability vis-<`a>-vis the human population; sustaining biodiversity and ecological integrity; and energy resources. Includes a number of guest essays by environmental activists, researchers, ecologists, sociologists, entomologists, and others. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Meet the Author

G. Tyler Miller, Jr., has written 54 textbooks for introductory courses in environmental science, basic ecology, energy, and environmental chemistry since 1970. They include ENVIRONMENTAL SCIENCE, LIVING IN THE ENVIRONMENT, SUSTAINING THE EARTH, and ESSENTIALS OF ECOLOGY. Since 1975, Miller's books have been the most widely used textbooks for environmental science in the United States and throughout the world. They have been used by almost 3 million students and have been translated into six languages. Miller has a Ph.D. from the University of Virginia and has received two honorary doctorate degrees for his contributions to environmental education. Currently, he is President of Earth Education and Research. He explains his hopes for the future as follows: "This book summarizes what I have learned in more than four decades of trying to understand environmental principles, problems, connections, and solutions. If I had to pick a time to be alive, it would be the next 75 years. Why? First, there is overwhelming scientific evidence that we are in the process of seriously degrading our own life support system. In other words, we are living unsustainably. In doing this, we are likely to cause the premature extinction of up to half of the world's species during this century. Second, I believe that within [students'] lifetime we have the opportunity and the responsibility to learn how to live more sustainably by working with the rest of nature instead of trying to conquer it mostly for our own species. This book and the course in which it is used should give students a good start on this challenging lifelong adventure."
