Editorial Reviews

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)
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)
