Environmental Ecology, Biodiversity and Climate Change

Towards Sustainable Development

By H.M. Saxena

Environmental issues are now central to the development debate in the 21st century. These now relate to many political, social, and economic problems. A complete knowledge of these issues is not only essential for policy makers and administrators, but also for the common man. The government of India has realized the increased need for a working knowledge of the environmental issues. This book covers the core areas of India's environmental ecology, biodiversity, climate change, and sustainable development. Written in a clear and non-technical style, the book discovers major issues, such as deforestation, pollution, energy, climate change, global warming, food production, loss of biodiversity, waste management, sustainability, etc. Providing a comprehensive understanding on all these topics, the book is further supported by multiple-choice questions for students who are required to take various competitive exams.
