S.N. Mishra (Editor) R. Swarup (Editor) V.P. Jauhari (Editor)
Synopsis “An Introduction to man and his environment”, as the title sounds itself, the present volume describes man and his environment and various kinds of pollutions which he comes across in the surrounding. Man’s brain has developed to an incredible extent over the past several thousand years. This has allowed him to become more independent of animal instincts and more capable of exploratory and creative actions, but at the same time it has increased his powers of destruction. Through the development of these powers man has increasingly destroyed or modified much of the natural environment and created an artificial one of his own. In order to understand man’s special relationship with his environment it is necessary to review his more recent evolution briefly. This book is a one volume scientific discussion of past history, population growth, noise pollution, water pollution, air pollution and the problem and land space etc. this book will meet the requirements of a wide rang of readers who are involved directly or indirectly with various kind of pollutions. They may be students and researchers of environment and environmental protection agencies and activists.
