Science and the Global Environment: Case Studies for Integrating Science and the Global Environment by Alan McIntosh & Jennifer Pontius

Case Studies for Integrating Science and the Global Environment is designed to help students of the environment and natural resources make the connections between their training in science and math and today's complex environmental issues. The book provides an opportunity for students to apply important skills, knowledge, and analytical tools to understand, evaluate, and propose solutions to today's critical environmental issues.

The heart of the book includes four major content areas: water resources; the atmosphere and air quality; ecosystem alteration; and global resources and human needs. Each of these sections features in-depth case studies covering a range of issues for each resource, offering rich opportunities to teach how various scientific disciplines help inform the issue at hand. Case studies provide readers with experience in interpreting real data sets and considering alternate explanations for trends shown by the data. This book helps prepare students for careers that require collaboration with stakeholders and co-workers from various disciplines.

  • Includes global case studies using real data sets that allow readers to practice interpreting data and evaluating alternative explanations
  • Focuses on critical skills and knowledge, encouraging readers to apply science and math to real world problems
  • Employs a system-based approach, linking air, water, and land resources to help readers understand that cause-effect may be complex and solutions to environmental problems require multiple perspectives
  • Includes special features such as links to video clips of scientists at work, boxed information, a solutions section at the end of each case study, and practice exercises
