Overview

Miller/Spoolman's LIVING IN THE ENVIRONMENT, 19th Edition offers your students an inspiring introduction to environmental science. Using sustainability as the integrating theme, the authors introduce multiple environmental problems and present balanced discussions to evaluate potential solutions. Their approach transforms complex topics into key concepts that students understand and remember, and frames concepts with goals for more sustainable lifestyles and communities. As a result, students see how promising the future can be -- and their role in shaping it.

G. Tyler Miller Jr.,

G. Tyler Miller has written 62 textbooks for introductory courses in environmental science, basic ecology, energy, and environmental chemistry. Since 1975, Miller's books have been the most widely used textbooks for environmental science in the United States and throughout the world. They have been used by almost three million students and have been translated into eight languages. Miller has a professional background in chemistry, physics, and ecology. He has a PhD from the University of Virginia and has received two honorary doctoral degrees for his contributions to environmental education. He taught college for 20 years, developed one of the nation's first environmental studies programs, and developed an innovative interdisciplinary undergraduate science program before deciding to write environmental science textbooks full time in 1975. Currently, he is the president of Earth Education and Research, which is devoted to improving environmental education.
