The dynamic writing duo of G. Tyler Miller and Scott Spoolman join forces to provide college and university students with a useful resource in their textbook Environmental Science, ISBN 9780495560166. With the main focus of sustainability, this text emphasizes natural capital, natural capital degradation, solutions, trade-offs, and the importance of individuals. Students will come to understand how nature works, how humans interact with it, and how people have sustained—and can continue to sustain—a relationship with the earth by applying nature's lessons to economies and individual lifestyles. A myriad of effective text features are boasted in this book including "Core Case Studies," "How Would You Vote" questions, and "Thinking About" exercises which display the relevance of issues as well as encourage critical thinking. G. Tyler Miller and Scott Spoolman strategically organize the concepts of Environmental Science across five thematic sections and 17 comprehensive chapters. The first section of this book is devoted to 'Humans and Sustainability: An Overview' with a look at environmental problems, their causes, and sustainability. The next section of the book takes a look at 'Ecology and Sustainability.' Chapters in this section discuss science, matter, and energy, ecosystems, evolution and biodiversity, species interactions, and population control, the human population and urbanization, as well as climate and biodiversity. 'Sustaining Biodiversity' is also a section topic with those chapters looking at two different approaches to doing so-the species approach and the ecosystem approach. Another section of this book is devoted to 'Sustaining Resources and Environmental Quality.' Topics discussed in this section include food, soil, and pest management, water resources and water pollution, geology and nonrenewable minerals, energy, environmental hazards and human health, air pollution, climate change, and ozone depletion, and solid and hazardous waste. A section presenting discussions of 'Sustaining Human Societies' includes a chapter investigating environmental economics, politics, and worldviews.
