By H.M. Saxena
Humanity has exploited the natural environment for thousands of years, but in the last two centuries, human impact has increased many fold, owing to population growth and technological changes. At the same time, we have also witnessed a growing awareness and concern for environmental education. Environmental management has now become a broad and rapidly evolving discipline because of serious consequences that have been experienced by mankind or are likely to happen in the future. This second edition offers a comprehensive overview of global environmental problems and provides concise, non-technical explanations to various environmental processes and systems. Further, it incorporates sustainable development as a key component of environmental management discourse.
