An Introduction to Environment

By Vishwambhar Prasad Sati

Currently, environmental studies are a prime area of focus, in the wake of the high level of environmental degradation and a worldwide awareness towards conservation. Today, biotic and abiotic factors are struggling for their existence. Tremendous urbanization, industrialization, population growth, and large-scale exploitation of natural resources have led to high levels of temporal and spatial changes in the environment, including in particular, climate change, global warming, and global cooling. Summers are too hot. Winters are too cold. Extreme floods and extreme droughts have put constraints on the survival of living beings. Environmental hazards, natural and man-made, are more intensified and extreme. This book addresses interrelated yet distinct issues pertaining to the environment, including the ecosystem, biodiversity, environmental pollution and hazards, environmental degradation, population explosion, global warming, and climate change.
