Environmental Changepresents an introductory exploration of past, present and future change in the environment. Combining the ecological and evolutionary approaches brought forth in his related title,Geoecology, Huggett introduces the interconnected aspects of the natural environment--ecological, geological and cosmic--and the dynamic nature of the environmental system. The book examines human-environment interaction, and biological and physical evidence and causes of environmental change over a range of timescales. Exploring rates and directions of change, Huggett postulates an unending adaption of the ecosphere and its parts to ever-changing circumstances, including those triggered by human actions, and looks towards likely environmental changes in the future.
