ENVIRONMENTAL SCIENCE: WORKING WITH THE EARTH, Ninth Edition is a concise alternative to G. Tyler Miller's best-selling text LIVING IN THE ENVIRONMENT, which redefines the environmental science course and sets the standard by which every other book for this course is judged. This Ninth Edition is a significant, all-encompassing revision providing greater focus on the basic scientific content necessary to understand environmental issues in clear, straightforward language. It provides the latest developments and reflects several major shifts in environmental science education that are taking place in this century. Designed as a foundational text for environmental science courses, Miller's flexible book is adaptable to almost any approach, and is the most widely embraced approach to environmental science in print today. With fair and balanced coverage and Internet tools integrated throughout, the book features an extensively developed art program, writing that communicates scientific information clearly and effectively, and the most current coverage of the subject. The book's flexible organization means that it can be adapted to fit almost any syllabus. Miller's more than thirty years of research and teaching expertise make this the definitive book on the subject.

This ninth edition places increased emphasis on science-based approaches that interact with political solutions to address environmental problems, offers greater integration of economic and environmental topics, and stresses the shift from large centralized sources of power to a dispersed array of smaller micropower plants. There are two new chapters on community ecology and geology, and expanded coverage of aquatic biodiversity. Tyler is president of Earth Education and Research, and professor of human ecology at St. Andrews Presbyterian College. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
