This new edition offers a total of 399 biographies, many with new images that address the most pressing topics of environmental concern.

Updated Timeline of American Environmentalism: The timeline marks important firsts in areas vital to the environment and its protection, such as accomplishments of various social movements, significant legislation, technological advances, and extreme climate-change-induced weather events as well.
