Overview

This introductory text explores important issues in agriculture and natural resources. Chapters are organized around student objectives and include chapter questions as well as additional learning activities to enhance classroom time. Each section includes a chapter on careers that provides current information on occupations and educational requirements for workers at both professional and technical levels for a particular area. Case studies are included to stimulate thought provoking discussions and to explore some of the more difficult issues. All facets of natural resource management are discussed in detail: soils, forests, water, game, and energy. This text takes a broad look at the panorama of preservation, exploitation, and conservation of natural resources. Conservation issues are presented in terms of how they shape today's natural resource management concerns.

Examines the nature, history, and management of natural resources ranging from soil and water to forests, wildlife, and marine resources. Includes suggested activities and discussion of occupations in the field.
