Description : A perfect harmony between man and environment is the essence of healthy life and sustainable growth. And therefore, maintenance of ecological balance and a pristine environment is the need of the hour. This comprehensive book on environmental management discusses various aspects of environment, the ecosystems, effects of global warming and pollution, and various ways to conserve nature and save environment. The eight sections of the book virtually are the eight fundamental components which, in one way or the other, play a crucial role in managing the environment. The book begins with the section on Ecology and classification of ecosystems. It then moves onto the next section on Biodiversity, which discusses the Biodiversity Acts. The book progresses by discussing the third most important section on Environmental degradation, its causes, which include global warming, pollution (air, land and water) and prevention and control. India is an agriculture-based economy, and the next section elaborates on the Agro-ecosystem, its management and techniques of sustainable organic farming. The fifth section of the book on Forest and Wildlife, deals with the serious issues like deforestation, its effects on the environment and the wildlife, and touches upon the most sensitive issue of various animals getting extinct. The next section covering Waste Management (industrial waste, e-waste and solid waste) discusses the legal aspects of hazardous wastes. Environment Legislation, the proceeding section, is on environmental laws, International treaties and green marketing. Finally the eighth section, which focuses on the Ethical Aspects of Environment highlights the important issues like environmental ethics, and how environment is treated in various religions. The book is interspersed with real-life cases to give the topics a reasoned approach. Designed as a text for the postgraduate students of management, this book can be equally useful for the undergraduate students of all disciplines.
