Environment: The Science Behind The Stories, 1Ce, offers a thorough and engaging study of the environment to Canadian students. By applying an approach that creatively blends science and social issues and by situating the presented issues in a Canadian and global context, Environment, 1Ce, offers lasting appeal to students and instructors alike. A variety of pedagogical features helps students learn and retain the presented material. Case studies appear at the beginning of each chapter and highlight Canadian people, places, and data that are in the foreground of environmental action. The Science Behind The Stories textboxes engage students in the scientific process of testing and discovery. Weighing the Issues boxes challenge students to grapple with difficult ethical questions. And our new Canadian Environmental Perspectives profile a wide variety of Canadians who contribute to our understanding of the environment.
