Biotech's Dictionary of Ecology

Dinesh Arora (Editor) Dinesh Arora (Compiler)
Synopsis The term 'dictionary' for a layman means a reference book that consists of a list of words along with their meanings. And, when one talks of a dictionary, he or she is implicitly understood as referring to a dictionary of English words. But, unlike what our minds are tuned to think, a person who is talking about a dictionary might just be talking about a glossary of terms belonging to a particular subject. This is exactly where our series comes in the picture. The series consists of dictionaries on varied subjects, ranging from common topics like Commerce and Botany, to very profound and complicated subjects like Entomology and Toxicology. The use of simple and easily comprehensible language, along with real life examples and appropriate pictures, fosters an enriching learning experience for the readers, thereby making each and every volume a must buy. Understanding ecology is crucial to man's future, which depends on our ability to wisely manage the earth's biological resources. An understanding of ecology provides the basis for the sustainable use of natural resources, for the conservation of habitats and species and for the prediction of the effects of man's activities on the natural environment. Ecology is thus of major importance to everyone. This work is a splendid attempt to present an alphabetical list of words, terminologies and their meanings or interpretations (glosses) in a various ecological contexts. Here, in this magnificent creation a wide range of environmental disciplines, ranging in scale from the gene to whole Earth systems have been specially highlighted. The aim is to improve our understanding of both the environment and the processes that underlie the Earth's support systems. Moreover the impacts of human activity on natural environments are particularly interested. Therefore it is possible to generate practicable solutions to today’s pressing environmental problems, so that a healthy, wealthy and sustainable environment can be enhanced and maintained in India and worldwide.
