This is designed to help students see how concepts and ideas are related. - As with previous editions, reviewers' suggestions are incorporated into the text, either through small changes in copy to improve clarity and accuracy, or by providing the most up-to-date information available. - Each Part Opener features a guest author's essay that describes an environmental issue in his own backyard.
