The intricacies and complexities of the many environmental problems confronting society are many as a consequence of mankind’s ruthless and unscrupulous ravaging of the planet’s natural resources and resorting to practices that are polluting and damaging the environment. There are changes every minute, mostly for the worse.
Rainforests are disappearing; large tracts of arable land are turning into deserts; the ozone layer is being depleted rapidly; the natural rhythm of the seasons of nature is in disarray, and ecological and environmental disasters and catastrophes loom large. Of late, not only environmentalists, but also the general public and politicians and leaders of world opinion are awaking to the crisis that is developing in the sphere of environment and ecology.
This book examines the various dimensions and aspects of the environmental crisis in all its nuances and explains how some of the ill effects of environmental mismanagement can be ameliorated. Solutions to vexing problems in environment control and management are advanced to help those concerned with conservation and environment protection to take definitive action.
This book will be useful for students, teachers and researchers in the field of Environmental Sciences, Life Sciences, and Environmental Engineering,
