Environment, 10th Edition

ISBN: 9781119393412

Environment, Tenth Edition helps students understand the connection between the core concepts of the Environmental Science and their daily lives.

The tenth edition enhanced e-text features a rich, interactive collection of current case studies and in-text examples, which provides students with the tools to understand, apply, and think critically about environmental science. It also provides instructors with powerful tools to assess individual students progresses well as the class as a whole.


  • A focus on Systems and Sustainability highlight how the various aspects of the environment interact, and how changes in one part of the environment might affect other processes, places and organisms. Understanding this is essential to managing existing problems, avoiding future problems and improving the world we live in.
  • Critical Thinking and Review Questions, many new to this edition, encourage critical thinking and highlight important concepts and applications. At least one question in each chapter provides a systems perspective; another question relates climate and energy to the chapter. Visual questions have been added to each chapter.
  • Well-developed extensive pedagogy offers a clear way for students to move from general concepts to applications of key concepts.
