An Introduction to Human Environment Geography

Cities are fascinating places in which to conduct environmental history. Although traditionally considered non-natural and highly human, cities do have profound impacts on the surrounding countryside and on those living inside the city.

This introductory level text explores various theoreticalapproaches to human-environment geography, demonstrating how localdynamics and global processes influence how we interact with ourenvironments. Introduces students to fundamental concepts in environmentalgeography and science Explores the core theoretical traditions within the field,along with major thematic issues such as population, food andagriculture, and water resources Offers an engaging and unique view of the spatial relationshipsbetween humans and their environment across geographical locationsaround the world Includes a variety of real-world policy questions andemphasizes geography’s strong tradition of field work byfeaturing prominent nature-society geographers in guest fieldnotes

Technological Trajectories and the Human Environment provides a surprising projection of a much greener planet, based on long-range analysis of trends in the efficient use of energy, materials, and land. The authors argue that we will decarbonize the global energy system and drastically reduce greenhouse gas emissions. We will dematerialize the economy by leaner manufacturing, better product design, and smart use of materials. We will significantly increase land areas reserved for nature by conducting highly productive and environmentally friendly agriculture on less land than is used today, even as global population doubles. The book concludes that the technological opportunities before us offer the possibility of a vastly superior industrial ecology. Rich in both data and theory, the book offers fresh analyses essential for everyone in the environmental arena concerned with global change, sustainable development, and profitable investments in technology.

This fresh and innovative approach to human-environmental relations will revolutionise our understanding of the boundaries between ourselves and the environment we inhabit. The anthology is predicated on the notion that values shift back and forth between humans and the world around them in an ethical communicative zone called ‘value-space’. The contributors examine the transformative interplay between external environments and human values, and identify concrete ways in which these norms, residing in and derived from self and society, are projected onto the environment.

This textbook explores the growing area of human-environment interaction. We live in the Anthropocene, an era dominated by humans, but also by the positive yet destructive environmental feedbacks that are poised to completely reset the relationships between nature and society. Modern and historic political, social, and cultural processes and physical landscape responses determine the intensity of these impacts. Yet different cultural groups, political and economic entities view, react to, and impact these human-environmental processes in spatially distinct and divergent ways. Providing an accessible, up-to-date, approach to human-environment interactions with balanced coverage of both social and natural science approaches to core environmental issues, this textbook is an integrative, multi-disciplinary offering that discusses environmental issues and processes within the context of human societies. The book begins by addressing the three most pressing issues of our time: climate change, threshold exceedance, and the 6th mass extinction. From there the authors identify within chapters on resources, population, agriculture and urbanization what precipitated and continues to sustain these three issues. They end with a chapter outlining some practical solutions to our human-environment crises. The book will be a valuable resource for interdisciplinary environment related courses bridging the gap between the social and natural sciences, human geographies and physical geographies. Mark R. Welford is Head and Professor of Geography at the University of Northern Iowa, USA. He is the author of Geographies of Plague Pandemics: The Spatial-Temporal Behavior of Plague to the Modern Day. He is also a co-Principal Investigator on a National Science Foundation RAPID grant entitled "Tracking and Understanding Spatiotemporal Dynamics of the COVID-19 Pandemic in the Arctic." Robert A. Yarbrough is Associate Professor of Geography in the Department of Geology and Geography at Georgia Southern University, USA.
