THE CHANGING EARTH: EXPLORING GEOLOGY AND EVOLUTION, Sixth Edition, is a member of a rare breed of texts written specifically for courses covering both physical and historical geology but it also stands apart by other measures. Three interrelated themes (plate tectonics, organic evolution, and geologic time) help students understand that Earth is a complex, integrated, and continually changing system. Lauded for its consistent and clear writing style, the text is also noted for stunning visuals (updated in this edition) and real-life examples that draw students into the material. The authors go beyond simply explaining geology and its processes; rather, they place that knowledge within the context of human experience by consistently emphasizing relevance, resources, and the environment. Important Notice: Media content referenced within the product description or the product text may not be available in the ebook version.The book design presents the material in easily digestible chapters, with clear delineations between sections and well-placed artwork.
