Reseña del editor
To meet the challenges of the future, the scientific community has recognized the importance of uniting efforts in understanding and caring for Earth and its systems. Science of Earth's Systems explains how scientists have found it necessary to share their research across disciplines to try and comprehend Earth's complexities, and how they are being affected by human activities. It brings together the interactions that occur in the living and non-living world, and provides readers with a solid understanding of the processes that take place on and around Earth and the synergies that exist between them. Topics covered include the role of science and technology in society; matter and energy; astronomy; geology; meteorology; oceanography; biology; environmental science; and much more. With colorful photo references, charts and tables, to help illustrate the subjects, this text is an valuable resource for learners of science in the twenty-first century.

The preface states that this text follows National Academy of Sciences guidelines. If this is true, science educators are in bigger trouble than ever when it comes to the editorial power behind developing marketable science curricula. Delmar published a HS level book that would be palatable for creationists and profitable for their publishing company. What an obvious omission, and embarrassment for Butz who was probably blind-sided when he TRIED to introduce ESS and 'PC' editors got their hands on it. Bottom line: You can't systematically eliminate a critical concept like evolution from ESS and expect the educated public to not notice. A thorough revision that weaves evolution throughout the sections mentioned above will be needed in the next edition.
