W. H. Freeman; 2nd edition
Following real people and real science, the second edition of Environmental Science for a Changing World (PDF) provides a unique context for teaching college students how science works and how to think critically about environmental issues. This is accomplished through the use of case studies that follow real people and real science. The chapters don’t merely comprise interesting stories; rather, each chapter is an example of science journalism at its absolute finest. Each chapter combines the layout, writing style, and graphics of Scientific American to create a single compelling story that demonstrates essential themes and concepts. This strategy has been shown to be so effective that teachers who use the ebook report a significant rise in the proportion of their students who read the assignments before coming to class and are prepared to take part in the discussion.
This updated new second edition features new scientific coverage, new stories, and enhanced Infographics—the textbook’s signature visual study tool that combines step-by-step callouts, memorable images, and now questions that foster scientific literacy. In addition, this new edition is the second edition to feature an updated new second edition.
Please take note that this only contains the PDF for the second edition of Environmental Science for a Changing World.
