Here is a valuable one-semester course text for non-science majors that delivers! It is concise, focused on material that will enable students to make intelligent choices about the future of the earth, and written in a style that will enable students to make connections to their own lives.

Students want to know how science relates to their lives, how the biosphere works, what is wrong with it, and what they can do to make a difference. Now there is a new text that provides the information students need and gives real-life examples that make the learning process more interesting and relevant.

THREE MAIN DIVISIONS OF TEXT
1. What science is and what students need to know about it
2. The biosphere, how it works, and its current problems
3. What students can do about the problems
