"The present book provides a scientific appraisal of the facts relating to environmental issues and is aimed at inculcating the management strategies with regard to eco-degradation. It is rather difficult to present all information of environmental issues in limited pages; however, an attempt has been made to concise the text in 63 chapters to know the spectrum of environmental threats.

The present book is a unique compilation of innovative articles contributed by eminent authors having their specialized fields, which will act as a keyboard in opening new vista in the field of environmental sciences. With its application--oriented and interdisciplinary approach, the book would be immensely useful to everyone dealing with environmental studies, such as University teachers, academics, technocrats, politicians, researchers and post graduate students."
