Global Change Biology

Erica Bree Rosenblum

  • The first of its kind. There is no other text on the market as focused on Global Change Biology as its own discipline. This textbook provides a definitive and cutting-edge treatment of the dynamic field of Global Change Biology. The book offers a comprehensive resource for instructors looking to develop an inspiring course about the study of life on a rapidly changing planet.
  • Expansive. A unique approach that traverses spatial (local to planetary), temporal (past to pressing), and biological (genes to ecosystems) levels with examples throughout the tree of life (microbes to mammals).
  • Integrative. Draws from many different fields and approaches and addresses complex and pressing topics.
  • Interactive. Many features designed for student engagement, reflection, and self-assessment including:
  • · The Blank Page. An opening feature of each chapter that provides a guided drawing or writing exercise that draws on the student's own experience with the topic in the upcoming chapter.
  • · Taking a Closer Look. Multifaceted case-studies organized around specific stressors, ecosystems, or issues at the intersection of science and society
  • · Meet the Data. Answers the call for more practice with quantitative reasoning; goes beyond the content to teach how to be a Global Change biologist.
  • · Reflection questions provided for each Figure and Table
