In nature, natural resources might be renewable or non-renewable; use of either of these forms beyond their rate of replacement is considered to be resource depletion. Sustainable development is a pattern of resource use that aims to meet human needs while preserving the environment so that these needs can be met not only in the present, but also for future generation, thereby involving the environment, local people and the future. The environmental problems throughout the world are growing rapidly due to growing population as well as rapid industrialization resulting environmental degradation of resources. The present book incorporates critical articles of various aspects of environmental threat, and their possible mitigation, the causes and effects of’ natural resource depletion and subsequent management strategies involving local people so that the needs can be met not only for the present but also for future generation. The book includes articles on: Global warming—A serious threat to the planet earth; Acid rain—An invisible environmental threat; Non-conventional energy—Progress and prospects in India; Innovation in technology development for sustainable use of non-timber forest products for livelihood security of forest dependent communities in tropical forests; Atmospheric ozone—Life saving as well as harmful pollutant; Resource augmentation, sustainable harvesting limit and sustainable management of some commercially important plant species; Sustainability and sustainable harvesting of medicinal and aromatic plants; and Biodiversity in India: Loss and conservation. This volume will definitely serve not only as an excellent reference material but also as a guide for teachers, research scholars, students in the field of environmental sciences.
