Authored by renowned professors and research practitioners Jay H. Withgott and Scott R. Brennan, Essential Environment: The Science behind the Stories (3rd Edition) is considered one of the most significant volumes in environmental science. This compilation of case studies, approaches, and data on the foundations of environmental science and its related policies, systems, and ethics combines the biological and physical sciences to make the subject relevant to interdisciplinary fields. The book aims to suggest solutions to various environmental issues affecting everyone. This widely adopted reference provides a quantitative, integrated, and multidimensional approach to studying the environmental systems. Concise yet comprehensive, it consists of 17 chapters that offer thorough yet straightforward discussions on matters such as the nature of environmental science, environmental economics, and the international environmental policy. Broader topics like evolution, population ecology, and biodiversity are also covered by authors Jay H. Withgott and Scott R. Brennan. Essential Environment: The Science behind the Stories (3rd Edition - ISBN 9780136045311) starts off a discussion of fundamentals such as energy, chemistry, and species interactions. The authors – both of whom have extensive backgrounds in environmental science and ecology – integrated new sections and essential insights on renewable energy alternatives, waste management, and energy conservation. This trustworthy and easy-to-understand reference also offers possible solutions to pressing environmental problems, encouraging students to think critically and inspiring them to understand earth processes, evaluate and come up with possible pollution control and energy systems, determine the future effects of global climate change, and how they can help reverse the situation.
