Description : "Living Physical Geography in the Laboratory contains a set of 30 labs covering wide-ranging topics from remote sensing to biogeography, plate tectonics, soils, and glaciation. Structured with flexibility in mind, each lab is divided into self-contained modules while equipment and supplies are kept to a minimum."--Publisher's webiste (https://www.macmillanlearning.com/college/us/product/Living-Physical-Geography-in-the-Laboratory/p/1464109575?searchText=).
Description : PHYSICAL GEOGRAPHY, Ninth Edition, uses the combined expertise of four respected geographers to show how Earth’s physical geography impacts humans, and how humans impact Earth’s physical geography. The text emphasizes three essential themes to demonstrate the major roles for the discipline -- Geography as a Physical Science, Geography as the Spatial Science, and Geography as Environmental Science. With a renewed focus on examining relationships and processes among Earth systems, this text helps students understand like never before how the various systems interrelate and how humans are an integral aspect of geography. Historically the first book to take a conservation approach, the authors continue to emphasize the theme of environmental and human impacts.

Description : It may well be said that there can be no geography which concerns itself with the actual shape and form of the land surface, solid rode, the configuration and extent of the seas and oceans, the enveloping atmosphere without which life as we know it cannot exist, the physical process which take place in that atmosphere. This book has been designed to cover the syllabus of physical geography required for the B.A. students of the Indian Universities. The subject matter has been arranged so as to provide clear and integrated approach to the subject with all essential tools of applicable geography for B.A. curriculum. Contents: Biogeography, Ecosystem, Biosphere, Biome, Food Chain.
