Research Starter about Environmental Science
Environmental science is the study of Earth and all its natural resources, both living and nonliving. This broad description encompasses a range of subgroups, most of which may be considered specific scientific disciplines themselves. Among these are the studies of soil, air, water, animals, and plants. A significant portion of environmental science also examines people's relationships to their natural surroundings, especially harmful human practices such as pollution. Information derived from these sources then can be compiled to provide a detailed image of what Earth's environment is like and how everything in it fits together.
Environment Complete offers deep coverage in applicable areas of agriculture, ecosystem ecology, energy, renewable energy sources, natural resources, marine & freshwater science, geography, pollution & waste management, environmental technology, environmental law, public policy, social impacts, urban planning, and more.
