Ecological Meltdown is a thought-provoking book that documents the destruction of biodiversity and ecosystems due to human actions. It warns of an impending ecological meltdown and analyses the causes behind it. These include unprecedented growth in human population, diversion and degradation of natural ecosystems, changing consumption patterns and survival strategies, sinking conservation funding, ineffective management, weak international biodiversity-related conventions, and never-ending conflicts.

The book is an invaluable resource for policy-makers and institutions in the forestry, wildlife, energy, rural development, and environment sectors. It is equally useful for conservationists, scientists, researchers, and students of environmental science.
