Synopsis : "Changing Earth: Exploring Geology and Evolution", 6e, International 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.
