About

Overview

This title provides a wide variety of perspectives on both traditional and more recent views of the Earth’s resources. It serves as a bridge connecting the domains of resource exploitation, environmentalism, geology, and biology, and explains their interrelationships in terms that students and other non-specialists can understand. The articles in this set are extremely diverse, with articles covering soil, fisheries, forests, aluminum, the Industrial Revolution, the U.S. Department of the Interior, the hydrologic cycle, glass, and placer mineral deposits. Top resources—mineral based, biologically based, and energy related (such as oil and tar sands)—are covered, as well as ecological resources such as Earth’s atmosphere and its biodiversity, core nations from Argentina to Zimbabwe, government laws and international conventions, milestone historical events, and energy resources from biofuels to coal to hydropower to wind and nuclear power.<\P>
