The Human Impact on the Natural EnvironmentThe Human Impact on the Natural Environment by Andrew Goudie

"The Human Impact is superb. . . . While accessible to beginning students, it is both instructive and inspiring to professionals. It is a treasure chest of research ideas." -- Stanley W. Trimble, University of California, Los Angeles

The Human Impact on the Natural Environment has become the classic student text on how human activity has changed and continues to change the face of the Earth. The fifth edition maintains the structure of the previous editions as it examines the human role in natural processes and systems. Areas covered include animals, vegetation, soils, landforms, water, the atmosphere, and climate. The book also considers future implications, particularly global warming.

The text and references of this edition have been updated throughout. The book includes new or expanded sections on species decline, pollution, sea level, ozone depletion, and climate change, as well as an expanded guide for further reading. It provides a comprehensive view of the major environmental issues facing the world today and gives students of the environment an essential introduction to the impact of humans on the Earth.

This book provides a comprehensive view of the major environmental issues facing the world today and gives students an essential introduction to the impact of humans on earth.
