"Environmental Studies" covers a broad range of topics like fundamentals of the environment, ecology, pollution problems, wildlife conservation, population ecology, biodiversity and environmental movements etc. This book evaluates natural resources with respect to their scientific utilizations supported with data from authentic sources and lays emphasis on the global degradation of the environment due to large scale atmospheric changes like greenhouse effect, ozone depletion and acid rain etc. The book also discusses environmental pollution problems that are faced today like air, water, soil, sound, plastic and radioactivity etc. Utmost care has been taken in drawing illustrations and using simple language in a lucid style to convey the importance of the environment and find remedial measures to mitigate different problems.
