Historically viewed as a sub-discipline of biology or ecology, environmental science has quickly grown into its own interdisciplinary field; grounded in natural sciences with branches in technology and the social science, today’s environmental science seeks to understand the human impacts on the Earth and develop solutions that incorporate economic, ethical, planning, and policy thinking. This lab manual incorporates the field’s broad variety of perspectives and disciplines to provide a comprehensive introduction to the everyday practice of environmental science. Hands-on laboratory activities incorporate practical techniques, analysis, and written communication in order to mimic the real-world workflow of an environmental scientist. This updated edition includes a renewed focus on problem solving, and offers more balanced coverage of the field’s diverse topics of interest including air pollution, urban ecology, solid waste, energy consumption, soil identification, water quality assessment, and more, with a clear emphasis on the scientific method. While labs focus on the individual, readers are encouraged to extrapolate to assess effects on their campus, community, state, country, and the world.

As urbanization and populations increase, it becomes increasingly more important that we understand the given relationships between the trends in our behaviour and the ecological impacts they impart. Of particular importance is the fragile state of a great number of our watersheds, which provide not only drainable areas from our rivers and streams, but also drinking water for human and animal populations alike. Watershed Investigations: 12 Labs for High School Science provides high school educators with a series of broad-based, hands-on experiments designed to help students understand the relationship between human impact and local hydrology. Covering a range of disciplines, including geology, chemistry, Earth science, botany, and biology, this volume gives educators lesson plans that will interest the student and meet a wide array of state and national currcular standards. The book includes twelve customizable labs, each with extensive background and reference information designed to allow students to share the excitement of discovery along with the methods of scientific research and relevant examples of textbook subject material. Labs include: Modeling Glacier Features with Sand; Glacial Features of a Watershed; Plant Identifications; Wetland Delineation; Measuring Plant Allelopathy; Stream Channel Morphology; Calculating Stream Discharge; Floor Frequency Analysis for a River; Comparison of Phosphorous Levels in Stream Sediments; Macroinvertebrate Identification; Factors that Affect Eutrophication; and Groundwater Contamination. The flexible formats of these labs can be customized to fit any teaching style and can be adapted to fit either inquiry-based or traditional methods based on the given class and situation. Additionally, the book contains helpful reference materials and appendices that include a history of the watershed, resources for additional information, and rubrics for writing classroom laboratory reports.

Environmental science is an integrated, interdisciplinary field that combines the study of ecology, physics, chemistry, biology, soil science, geology, atmospheric science, and geography. It is among the top 10 most popular Advanced Placement examinations taken by high school seniors in an effort to receive postsecondary college credit. Idiot's Guide® to Environmental Science provides a step-by-step review of the disciplines that comprise environmental science, helping students grasp the basic concepts, internalize the information, and prepare for exams. Features include: - The basics and history of the human relationship with the natural environment - The ways species grow, change, and interact - A detailed description of the earth's ecosystems, including deserts, grasslands, forests, and aquatic ecosystems - The effects of economics and agriculture on the environment - The various types of energy humans use, as well as how its production impacts the earth's ecosystems, with a focus on renewable energy sources - The ill effects of a growing population, including pollution, toxins, bacteria, waste, and global warming/climate change

? Utilizes innovative learning techniques, such as problem-based, active, and critical learning. Group and cohort paths to knowledge are encouraged. As part of this approach, the authors stress student-initiated inquiry and experimentation as well as emphasizing civic responsibility in environmental science. ? Develops a variety of topics that mirrors the a variety of subjects found in environmental science, including urban ecology, global impacts, air pollution, solid waste, energy consumption, soils identification, water quality assessment, and the scientific method. ? Encourages students to grasp the big picture by relating the lab activity to real life conditions and their individual contribution to environmental problems. We have individual measures and descriptions, but we also nurture application of this learning to the larger ecological picture. ? Develops a variety of techniques that include traditional laboratory activities, field exercises, Internet research, calculations/extrapolations, and critical analysis. Because the pursuit of real-world environmental science involves all these components, so do the lab activities found in Wagner. ? Emphasizes the improvement of written and other forms of communication. So much of science has become participatory, particularly in making decisions about its application ( i.e. environmental policy). ? Contains relevant problem sets that can be used as labs, lab supplements, or as homework assignments (for courses w/out a lab) for environmental science lectures.
