Synopsis Man has exploited the nature in various ways to his own benefit without realizing long term consequences. Presently, rapid industrialization, modern agricultural practices, automobile production, population growth and destruction of natural resources are some of the important factors responsible for increasing pollution. The unchecked pollution of the environment has made the life of mankind miserable on this planet. The book embodies all kinds of recent information on different aspects of pollution problems. The impact of environmental pollution on human health has been described. Ecohydrological features of the Holy Ganga river, microbial contamination of water resources, conservation of coastal and island areas and effect of acid rain have been nicely elucidated. Environmental problems related to coal mines, arid zone, pesticides, fossils, past biodiversity crisis have been vividly discussed. Effects of various toxicants on biological systems, metal poisoning, atmospheric reactions, chemical toxicity and health hazards, use of antidotes, biochemical monitoring and toxicity assessment have been thoroughly presented. Environmental sustainability, wetland management and role of vermitech in pollution abatement have also been given. All the chapters provide important information in an up-to-date fashion and in a readable and intelligible way. Overall, the readers will find the book interesting in the present context of environmental deterioration. In fact, it has been an endeavour to make a comprehensive compilation dealing with not only the basic aspects of environmental biology but also its applied parts.
