About this book

Examines how and why environments change as a result of natural and human-mediated processes. Considers the scales of time and space over which changes in our environments occur; how human use of the resources of energy, land, water and the atmosphere effect environments; the role of technology and economics in shaping human actions on our environments; and the use and limitations of different models for thinking about environmental change.

...well illustrated in colour...lots of 'activities' for students to pursue... (Progress in Physical Geography Vol. 28 No. 3)
