Summary "Offering a true geographic approach to environmental issues, this Third Edition of William Marsh and John Grossa's ENVIRONMENTAL GEOGRAPHY: SCIENCE, LAND USE, AND EARTH SYSTEMS examines human-related environmental issues in the context of the processes and systems of physical geography. Throughout, the authors emphasize traditional themes of geography, such as the concept of an integrated planet; the principles of space, scale, and distributions; the idea of landscape as a human-environmental interplay; and the perspective of earth as a dynamic planet with many environmental opportunities, constraints, and risks."--Publisher description.
