"Environment: The Science Behind The Stories" is an introductory textbook that uses case studies and real data to engage students and show them the role of science in solving pressing environmental problems. The book integrates case studies into the body of the text to capture students' attention and provide them with a contextual framework for the science they are learning. With only 20 chapters, "Environment: The Science Behind The Stories" avoids the encyclopedic approach of other textbooks on the market. Science Behind the Story boxes explain how scientists know what they know about environmental problems, while opposing viewpoints on contentious environmental issues allow students to hear both sides of the story. The powerful instructor presentation package includes five minute video clips for use as lecture launchers and lecture outlines in PowerPoint. The Student CD ROM and website includes GRAPH IT graphing tutorials, which show students how to plot, interpret, and critically evaluate real data.
