Overview for Environmental Hazards: Plants and People

The book in hand, comprising 27 chapters prepared by leading subject experts in the country, addresses the diversities of environmental contamination, evaluates the problems and disturbances which they cause to the biotic as well as abiotic components of the ecosystem, and indicates strategies that are being developed to salvage the situation.  The chapters dealing with the general aspects of environment and pollution are given in the beginning, followed by those which are relatively more specialized and elucidate specific effects of the environmental components on flora, fauna and materials.  Some chapters demonstrate as to how plants respond to the varying environmental scenario, how they tend to adapt to the existing conditions and how these can serve as pollution indicators.  A few chapters deal with the relevant techniques that can be useful in impact assessment, resource conservation, recovery of energy and material, and quality improvement.  Some of the chapters address the interaction of environmental components with pathogen behaviour and disease development.  At the end are these chapters dealing with management of environmental stresses and conservation of healthy environment.  A brief summary has been provided at the front of each chapter so as to give readers a general idea of the major contents of the related text.  The book, on the whole, caters to the interest of not only science students and environmentalists but of all those who have a concern for ecological balance, environmental health and global social welfare.  In the absence of any authentic and easy to understand text on environmental stress, as it is today, this book should also turn out as an attractive textbook for the undergraduate as well as postgraduate students of environmental biology and environmental chemistry.
