AN ENVIRONMENTALLY CORRECT WAY TO LEARN

Now anyone with an interest in environmental science can master it -- without formal training, unlimited time, or a genius IQ. In Environmental Science Demystified, scientist and writer Linda Williams provides an effective, entertaining, and scientifically compelling way to learn or review the fundamentals of environmental science.

With Environmental Science Demystified, you master the subject one simple step at a time -- at your own speed. This unique self-teaching guide offers quizzes at the end of each chapter and part to pinpoint weaknesses, and a 100-question "final exam" to reinforce the subject as a whole.

Here's everything you need to:

  • Become a better friend to Planet Earth with real-world examples, environmental notes, tips, and scientific news
  • Uncover humans' impact on the Earth's atmosphere, land masses, and water bodies, and the impact of solid and hazardous wastes
  • Learn the truth about the greenhouse effect, global warming, and weather cycles
  • Discover amazing ecosystems and biodiversity, erosion and desertification
  • Learn about the hydrologic cycle, oceans, glaciers, and water pollution and treatment
  • Discover the secrets of geochemical carbon and calcium cycling
  • Take a "final exam" and grade it yourself!

Simple enough for beginners but substantial enough for advanced students, Environmental Science Demystified is your direct route to learning or brushing up on this important subject.
