BEST SELLER! (800) 221-1592 PRINCIPLES OF SCIENCE This new series from Salem Press provides high school students and undergraduates with a solid foundation to the study of several popular fields of science. Readers can use these entries as a solid starting off point to develop a thorough understanding of this complex subject matter. Principles of Geology This new volume explores the academic discipline of geology and related fields of study in more than 100 easy-to- understand entries. Geology, the earth science concerned with the solid structure of Earth and any terrestrial planet or natural satellite, studies the rocks of which it is made, and the processes by which they change over time. Broad categories covered in this volume include: • Plate tectonics • Evolutionary history of life • Geologic time • Planetary geology • Hydrology • Dating techniques, like relative or absolute dating This research has applications in the areas of mineral and hydrocarbon exploration and exploitation, evaluating water resources, and understanding natural hazards like volcanic eruptions and earthquakes. Geology is part of the efforts to remediate environmental problems, and provides insights into past climate change. January 2019 | One Volume, 400 Pages | Print ISBN: 978-1-64265-042-6 | Library Price: $165 Principles of Climatology This volume provides readers with the important information they need to understand the basic concepts of climatology as well as the knowledge that this relatively new science can offer. Climatology is related not only to weather, but to agriculture, urban planning, the economy, and political action. More than 120 easy-to-understand entries, many with illustrations and photographs, cover topics related to such important concepts in climatology as: • Condensation Level • Greenhouse Effect • Microclimate • Sea Surface Temperature • Sublimation • Troposphere This new volume will be an important addition to high school and undergraduate libraries with a focus on providing up-to-date resources for students engaged in STEM studies as well as to science collections at all levels. August 2018 | One Volume; 120 Entries | Print ISBN: 978-1-68217-943-7 | Library Price: $165 Principles of Ecology Ecology considers how organisms of the same species interact with each other, how organisms of different species in the same space interact, and how multiple communities interact to make up an ecosystem, information crucial in understanding how biodiversity affects ecological function. In over 120 articles, Principles of Ecology addresses topics including: • Morphology • Human ecology • Resilience • Social ecology • Co-evolution • Traits • Biome • Biosphere Ecology and evolutionary biology are considered the “sister disciplines” of the life sciences because of their focus on natural selection, adaptation, populations, and inheritance, all of which inform the way in which an “evolutionary tree” is drawn, and explains why the taxonomy developed by Linnaeus is still evolving today.
