Overview

The new third edition provides environmental scientists with an approach that focuses on visuals rather than excessive content. The streamlined coverage discusses the basic science so students walk away with a strong understanding of the facts. New Think Critically and Data Interpretation features encourage them to analyse visuals and graphs to place information in context. The illustrations have been improved and additional opportunities to conduct real data analysis have been added. The What a Scientist Sees feature also gives environment scientists a real-world perspective of how a concept or phenomenon is applied in the field.
