The unfathomable spate of urbanizations, changing style of consumption and skewed depletion of natural resources have amounted to the enlarging entropy and mounting anarchy in the biosphere. Global warming has earned the worst Alb Edo ever since the change of traditional life into a ruthlessly consumptive mode of urbanite life. In the face of global warming and swallowing urbanizations, the worst victim is the ichthyofaunal diversity, which has been sustaining the human civilization since inception. So, the need of the hour is to screen out the critical factors amounting to productivity level and remaining resilient to the ecological balances. And logically, this approach needs a peoples participatory tools and techniques for both identifying the reasons of erosion vis-a-vis extinction and there by application of participatory tools to combat the viscitudes of ecological imbalanced. The book has been neatly designed to describe and analyze the biophysical factors of productivity, time and trend analysis to present the fisher folk wisdom in predicting the slope of erosions calculating the Fish Magnitude Volume (FMV) and to statistically analyze the direct and indirect impact of different factors causing erosion of fish species in different Lentic Aqua Systems. Singhbhum of Jharkhand State as a research locale has become an excellent choice since the region can represent the fragility of ecological balances as India is facing to day at large. This book is the output of comprehensive researches; enlighten discourses and strong predicting values to highlight the need and essentiality of biodiversity conservation as well as topping up of productivity through a complete fusion of biophysical and social realms.
