DESCRIPTION
The seventh edition of this classic student text explores the multitude of impacts that humans have had over time upon vegetation, animals, soils, water, landforms and the atmosphere. It also looks into the future and considers the ways in which climate changes and modifications in land cover may change the environment in coming decades. Extensively re-written, it contains many new statistical tables, figures, and references. It is essential reading for undergraduates in geography and environmental science, and for those who want a thorough, wide-ranging and balanced overview of the impacts of humans upon natural processes and systems from the Stone Age to the Anthropocene and who wish to understand the major environmental issues that concern the human race at the present time.

REVIEWS
The new edition of this classic student text provides an up-to-date and comprehensive view of the major environmental issues facing the world today, and is an essential introduction to the past, present and future impact of humans on Earth... A new design makes the text even more accessible and easy to use. (Biotechnol. Agron. Soc. Environ., 1 September 2013) As a resource for teachers, students or researchers in need of an assessment of human interactions with the planet, this is unbeatable; some would say essential. (Frontiers of biogeography, 5 February 2013) Previous Edition Reviews: The new edition of this student text provides an up-to-date and comprehensive view of the major environmental issues facing the world today and serves as an introduction to the past, present, and future impact of humans on Earth. Specifically, it explores the impact of humans on vegetation, animals, soils, water, landforms, and the atmosphere. Four completely new chapters explore how global climate change may impact Earth in the future.
