Pressestimmen

"The new edition of this student text provides an up-to-date and comprehensive view of the major environmental issues facing the world today and serves as an introduction to the past, present, and future impact of humans on Earth. Specifically, it explores the impact of humans on vegetation, animals, soils, water, landforms, and the atmosphere. Four completely new chapters explore how global climate change may impact Earth in the future." Natural Hazards Observer "The book is filled with new information and intriguing examples that Goudie has selected to illustrate in each of his well-organised chapters." Environmental Geology Praise for the fifth edition "This is a splendid compendium of what we know and understand about environmental problems. The author is to be congratulated on a work that is suitable as a textbook or a supplementary reader for courses at all university levels." Quarterly Review of Biology "A well-illustrated textbook, it is a brilliantly concise examination of just how much we are changing the world around us. A classic. Geography at its best." New Scientist "For all those who are interested in how humans have and are changing the face of the Earth, The Human Impact has become something of a classic text ... Indeed, as a classic, it has an important part to play in colouring our perception of humans' relationship with the natural environment ... altogether readable, stimulating and instructive ... it is an essential textbook for all who are interested in human impacts on the environment." Scottish Geographical Journal
