Communicating in Geography and the Environmental Sciences is about communicating effectively in academic settings. This key textbook builds on the success of its earlier editions and comprehensively covers the 'whys' and 'how's' of essays, research and laboratory reports, reviews, summaries, annotated bibliographies, maps, figures, tables, posters, examinations, and talks. In its third edition, additional material on creating figures has been included, and there is new material on evaluating the credibility of web-pages and the advantages and disadvantages of different kinds of visual aids. This book was written to provide students with an insight into the expectations of the people for whom they will be writing essays, giving talks, and drawing figures, enabling them to prepare better work than might otherwise have been possible.
