Ecology and the Biosphere: Principles and Problems (Paperback)

Usually despatched within 2 weeks.


Here is a valuable one-semester course text for non-science majors that delivers! It is concise, focused on material that will enable students to make intelligent choices about the future of the earth, and written in a style that will enable students to make connections to their own lives.

Students want to know how science relates to their lives, how the biosphere works, what is wrong with it, and what they can do to make a difference. Now there is a new text that provides the information students need and gives real-life examples that make the learning process more interesting and relevant.


1. What science is and what students need to know about it

2. The biosphere, how it works, and its current problems

3. What students can do about the problems


Dr. Sharon La Bonde Hanks teaches biology at William Paterson College in New Jersey. She holds a Ph.D. from Rutgers University. Her 33 years in teaching have concentrated on biology and environmental science, with research focused on ecology, taxonomy and systematic palynology. She has a special interest in writing about the discipline, assessment and race/gender issues in science. Hanks is the author of a major text on how to teach biology using the process approach. In addition, she runs workshops and is a consultant, an expert perennial gardener and naturalized landscaper, and an avid student of Tai Chi. She is most proud of her memberships in the New Jersey Audubon Weis Ecology Center, Habitat for Humanity, and the Nature Conservancy.
