As an instructor, he has taught university lab courses in ecology and other disciplines. As a science writer, Jay has authored articles for journals and magazines including "Science," New Scientist, BioScience, Smithsonian, and Natural History. By combining his scientific training with prior experience as a newspaper reporter and editor, he strives to make science accessible and engaging for general audiences. Jay holds degrees from Yale University, the University of Arkansas, and the University of Arizona. Jay lives with his wife, biologist Susan Masta, in Portland, Oregon. Matthew M. LaposataMatthew M. Laposata is a professor of environmental science at Kennesaw State University (KSU).

I just want you to read this who is buying a new book.

This book DOES NOT include the Access code.
If you need the code, buy the book named "Environment: The Science behind the Stories Plus MasteringEnvironmentalScience with eText -- Access Card Package (5th Edition)". This one is even more expensive with no code! Funny.

HASH(0xa4087660) out of 5 stars A GOOD VOLUME! Nov. 9 2014
By The Literacy Advocate - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
An excellent source book, ENVIRONMENT is full of evidence-based description. This book would have served my daughter's purpose admirably in her college environmental sciences class, had the professor not chosen to cancel the class the week it was to have begun in mid-semester (it was a half-semester course). Illustrations and graphic data presentation were well-placed and used effectively throughout the text. This book was intended for an online college course in the case of my daughter's curriculum, and it was our observation that the content of the textbook was extensive enough to have been a valuable resource in an environment bereft of classroom instruction; it certainly has meaty content. Although this textbook was far too expensive to keep, and we had no other option than to return the book so as to recoup our rental fee when the course was cancelled, we were able to peruse it and were impressed by its content, the extent of the research behind it, the depth of scientific data presented, and its overall presentation. A good volume!
HASH(0xa3adc288) out of 5 stars Solid 100 level text book on Env Sci Feb. 22 2016
By James Tolbert - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Really like the text book. Solid 100 level Environmental Science text that I am honored to get to teach out of. I like the tie in with real, current issues. I like the format and the dependence on real world experience. Just a few minor "errors" that I correct in class - but overall a very solid book.
