Global Environment: Issues and Problems
Our natural environment such as land, water, air, minerals, forests, wildlife or even human population can be used to promote man’s welfare for socio-economic and cultural needs, both at the individual and community level. But man ruthlessly exploited his own surroundings to meet his day-to-day requirements. The story still continues in various parts of the world at a slower or faster pace. Biological diversity if threatened by various forms of pollution but ultimately the greatest threat may be global climate change. Species and ecosystems within protected areas will certainly be affected by climate change. Destruction of tropical forests, coral reefs, wetlands and other biologically rich landscapes is causing an alarming loss of species and reduction of biological variety and abundance that could severly limit our future of options.
This volume is an attempt to highlight the issues and problems of global environment and suggests to researchers, pioneers scientists, academicians and policy makers that the globe is in our hands and remedies have to be made before nature alarms us finally.
