Exciting introduction to the rich, fascinating, and topical field of environmental studies. For this new third edition, respected geographers Philip Dearden and Bruce Mitchell have thoroughly expanded their coverage of basic scientific concepts, while continuing to explore a host of contemporary environmental issues. Climate change, oceans and fisheries, and endangered species are just some of the topics discussed. Increased focus on sustainable development, updated case studies, and a brand new chapter on urban environmental systems make this edition both current and cutting-edge.
