Management of Natural Resources in a Changing Environment

N. Janardhana Raju (Editor) Wolfgang Gossel (Editor) M. Sudhakar (Editor)

Our environment is undergoing drastic changes owing to multitude of human interventions. Such interventions create varying magnitude of pollution and environmental issues. Understanding the dynamics of environmental changes is critical to halting and reversing such environmental and human vulnerability. It is imperative to sustainably manage these situations for better livelihood conditions. The book is a peer reviewed edited volume that explores some of these issues. The contributors of this book share their exposure to the environmental problems especially those related to environmental pollution and remediation in different ecosystems. Bio-remediation for resource enrichment, strategies for mitigating environmental pollution issues and challenges in sustainable management of water resources are the main focus themes in this book.

In the Bio-remediation section different methods of physico-chemical and biological removal of the pollutants and recovery of the resources have been discussed. These studies are based on laboratory as well as field experiments in different ecosystems. The environmental pollution section discusses the different pathways of pollutant movement and environmental hazards including the loss of biodiversity. These studies suggest strategies to overcome these environmental issues. The section on Management of Water Resources explores different hydrological conditions emanating from misuse and mismanagement of surface and underground water resources. This section also showcases various technologies including modeling geospatial and other tools to assess such conditions. The book presents numerous field based research studies in different geo-environmental settings. The emphasis is on highlighting the methodological approaches to tackle different environmental problems. The book is a reference base for researchers, academicians, environmentalists and planners in particular who are interested in finding sustainable solutions to the challenging environmental issues and problems.
