The current volume incorporates various contributions from teachers, scholars and fellow scientists. The focus in the writings is mainly upon the symbiotic. As well as paradoxical relationship between ecology and agricultural development, particularly in the Himalayan regions. Contributors have specially highlighted the essence of such a relationship in terms of Geomorphology, soils, agricultural patterns, forestry, etc. No effort has been spared to make the work useful and contributive for students, scholars and teachers, alike. An increasing quantum of awareness, even among the general populace, makes it quite imperative that such a study should become a humble contribution towards the effort to make our agricultural development and our environment as a bastion of future human progress and prosperity.
