Environmental science is interdisciplinary, drawing from many different scientific areas that are needed to have a fuller understanding of environmental issues that have been caused by humans as well as natural activity. It is the study of the interaction between biological, chemical, and physical components of the environment and their effects on all organisms. Environmental scientists use scientific principles, methodologies, and tools to identify and analyze environmental problems and solutions. Because many environmental problems cover multiple scientific areas, environmental scientists often consult with other scientists and may also work in teams that consist of scientists who specialize in different areas.
