Earth Transformed: Introduction to the Human Impact on the Environment
Among the subjects described and considered by the authors are desertification, deforestation, wetland management, biodiversity, climatic change, air pollution, the impact of cities on climate and hydrology, erosion, salinization, waste disposal, sea level rise, marine pollution, coral reef degradation and aquaculture.
The book is organized around 45 case studies taken from all parts of the globe and chosen for their intrinsic interest and representative nature. Further features of the book include guides to further reading, suggestions for debate and study, and a glossary of terms.
The book is aimed to meet the needs of students beginning courses on environmental science and geography.
"Few readers of this journal, we may hope, will be unfamiliar with Andrew Goudie′s books on the human impact during the last 100 years or so, with an emphasis on the present day rather than the historical picture ...′The Earth Transformed′ forms an excellent way of introducing students in many different courses to this highly vital topic."I. G. Simmons, The International Journal of Environmental Studies
