Essential Environment: The Science Behind the Stories retains all the popular features of its parent volume, Environment: The Science behind the Stories—including its integrated central case study approach and its focus on the scientific process, current data, and critical thinking—in a brief 17-chapter text. The Third Edition features expanded coverage of global climate change in a new stand-alone chapter. Coverage of geology, minerals, and mining is also enhanced in a new chapter. CourseSmart textbooks do not include any media or print supplements that come packaged with the bound book.
