Basics of biology is an attractive introduction to environmental study. The book offers everyone learning and fascinated by the atmosphere, an important understanding of natural environments. It covers the whole breadth of the environmental sciences, providing concise, non-technical explanations of physical processes and systems and also the effects of human activities.
In this second edition, the scientific background to major environmental problems is clearly explained. These embody warming, genetically changed foods, geologic process, acid rain, deforestation, human population growth, depleting resources and nuclear power generation. There are also descriptions of the 10 major biomes.
Basics of Environmental Science by Michael Allaby
Three years have passed since the primary edition of Basics of biology appeared. During this time new issues have arisen, the difference in GB over the protection and desirability of genetically modified foods being the most spectacular example. At the same time, our understanding of other problems has improved as additional info regarding them has been gathered.
Revising the book for its recreate has given American state the chance to feature additional info wherever it is currently accessible and to stipulate a number of the new controversies, as well as that over genetically changed food. At the same time I have been able to study the whole of the text and to bring it up to date where necessary.
At intervals throughout the book I have added links to sites on the World Wide Web. This has now become an invaluable educational resource and I am delighted to have been able to weave this book into its fabric. Revised, updated, and modernized, I hope that the new edition will be of value and interest to everyone seeking to broaden their understanding of the science behind environmental problems.
