Environmental Science by Eldon Enger and Bradley Smith is an introductory-level textbook that is often praised for being concise and well-written. Authors Enger and Smith not only offer information on environmental science but also allows students to think about interrelationships and how we affect the environment. The book starts off with environmental interrelationships then continues on to environmental ethics, risks, economics, assessment, and management. It tackles interrelated scientific principles such as matter, energy and environment, interactions, as well as types of ecosystems and communities. Environmental Science (ISBN 9780073383200) covers population - characteristics and issues, energy and civilization, energy sources, nuclear energy, biodiversity issues, and land-use planning. Topics such as soil and its uses, agricultural methods and pest management, water management, air quality issues, and solid waste management and disposal are also covered. More importantly, it gives up-to-date information on environmental regulations. The textbook is printed in full color to make it even more engaging. Both authors are seasoned professors; Eldon has taught environmental science, biology, and zoology, and has co-authored widely used textbooks such as Integrated Science, Concepts in Biology, Integrated Science, and Field & Laboratory Exercises in Environmental Science. Smith taught environmental studies and political science, and has worked with Eldon in previous editions. This book aims to make students develop an appreciation for the environment and understand the world they live in through political realities, economic situations, and historical perspectives. Though written primarily for college courses, this book is also a good leisure reading material for anyone interested in environmental science.
