Environmental concerns often appear in the news, and it can be difficult to tell what matters, or what choice we have. Focusing upon scientific and technological aspects of the environment, you will consider the effects of human activities, such as farming. Topics include the biology of ecosystems and food chains, biodiversity, ecological sustainability and fossil fuels. This provides a brief survey of a very complicated subject, equipping you with some important concepts. Introducing environment is suitable for you or your colleagues if you are a beginner with little previous scientific knowledge, and may need to develop your general study skills.
