内容简介

内容简介

 

Environment: The Science behind the Stories is an introductory textbook that uses case studies and real data to engage students and show them the role of science in solving pressing environmental problems. The book integrates case studies into the body of the text to capture students' attention and provide them with a contextual framework for the science they are learning. With only 20 chapters, Environment: The Science behind the Stories avoids the encyclopedic approach of other textbooks on the market.
