About this Item: PHI Learning, 2014. Softcover. Condition: New. First edition. Natural resource management and sustainable development has, of late, assumed great importance, especially because of ecological crisis and environmental dangers which are looming large. Today the issues related to natural resource exploitation, consequences, their conservation, preservation and management leading to sustainable development have become the major thrust areas of teaching and research. Also, sustainability of natural resources, especially water and land resources, and their efficient use is one of the core programmes of Government of India?s Twelfth Five Year Plan (2012?2017) for strategic development; this objective can only be achieved if the resources are used judiciously. Although land and water resources?the focus of the present book?are vital for human survival and development, unfortunately both are under threat and are increasing strain worldwide. These resources have wide and significantly varying implications in rural and urban settlements, especially in India, where population has been continuously growing and, therefore, the demand of land and water is intensifying. This has necessitated urgent need for reviewing the availability of land and water resources and their conservation. Besides dealing with the theoretical aspects, this compendium presents case studies on natural resources as well, which reveal ground realities at micro and meso levels too. Pedagogical features like maps, diagrams, satellite imageries and latest database of the primary and secondary nature distinguish this book from other works on the subject. The book will be of immense use to postgraduate students and research scholars of geography and related disciplines such as rural?urban studies and environmental science. The thematic approach of the book provides reasonably good contents for cogitation to researchers. Policy makers, planners and academicians may also be benefitted while framing futuristic norms which may lead to sustainable development?the ultimate goal. AUDIENCE ?

About this Item: New Century Publications, 2010. Hardcover. Condition: New. Human development demands that all social groups have equal access to the services provided by the State and equal opportunity for upward economic and social mobility.

About this Item: Daya Publishing House/Astral International (P) Ltd., 2015. Hardcover. Condition: New. The factors that cause flowering in bamboos remain a botanical mystery. Many causes have been attributed to trigger gregarious flowering in bamboo but it has not been possible to establish their consistency. People believe that famine, death and natural disasters are associated events of bamboo flowering. Death of large populations of bamboos spread over large tracts of forest areas in Asia-Pacific region has been a cause of concern owing to the ecological, social and economic crises that set forth following bamboo flowering. During gregarious flowering, large quantities of seeds are produced. Many animals, particularly rodents feed on these nutritious seeds and reproduce fast to increase their population sizes. Once the seeds are exhausted due to germination, the rats/rodents depend on crops in the vicinity, thus causing famine. Considering the technological, scientific, socio-economic and environmental consequences of bamboo flowering and associated growth of rodent populations, the menace of bamboo flowering remains as a challenge. The book Bamboo flowering and rodent control includes 12 papers representing different dimensions of the subject authored by well-known Indian and Taiwan scientists, is an attempt to address this scientific challenge.

Anthropological theory reasons that successful populations have adapted to or are continuously adapting to their environment. Environment including physical biotic and cultural demographic acts as an agent of natural selection and may result in well adapted population. These factors vary widely across geography space and time and thus consequently one may have populations differing biologically and culturally in ways that reflect their history of adaptations to the local needs or stressors. WHO estimates that infectious diseases cause 48 per cent of deaths across the world among people under the age of 45 years. This is the case when science has advanced and medicine has achieved great heights enhancing longevity. Anthropology provides us a platform to study human bio social variations with its perspective on evolution and adaptation. This book attempts a comprehensive understanding of health and human well being. We will be looking into both mental and physical aspects that determine health. Our perspective remains an.

The study of anatomical physiological and psychological aspects of human beings in their working environment is important to ensure that the work fits the job to the man rather than the man to the job. In a semi industrialized country like India the working class is one of the weakest sections of society. And society being male dominated women workers receive still poor recognition/value. It is not that there are no statutory provisions to ensure fair working conditions for women in India. In fact the constitution of India provides equal rights and opportunities to both the genders. In addition there are specific provisions for protection and welfare of working women in many of the labour laws. However most of these legislations do not cover agriculture and units in small and informal sectors which are the predominant workplaces of women. The present work deals with working conditions of women in India. It examines in detail the activities and work methods of women workers. 216 pp. Seller Inventory # 73170

About this Item: Daya Publishing House, 1999. Hardcover. Condition: New. Mountain Agriculture though peculiar in many ways, is limited by a low land-man Ratio - the cultivated land is only 0.15 hectares as against the national figure of 0.34 hetares with only one-fifth of cultivated area under assured irrigation. Although efforts to develop hill agriculture were initiated in early fifties, planned development programme came to be evolved only in late sixties. But the Fruits of the so called `green revolution` have not yet reached these hilly Regions because of a paraphernalia of constraints. Furthermore, the severity of Soil Erosion and soil degradation is much more and widespread in hill agriculture due to fragile ecosystem and its impact on plains through downstream sedimentation and flooding. Cattle Grazing and Forest Fodder lopping in the hills further accelerate the soil erosion by denuding Forests and pastures. The present volume, consisting of 28 well researched papers, contributed by eminent scholars from different state Agricultural universities; ICAR-institutions and various Research Institutions makes an indepth Study of various aspects and growth of hill agriculture in a broad perspective in order to better the life of the people dwelling in these beautiful hilly areas.

The management of crop diseases has become important throughout the world. Various methods have been advocated to manage viral. bacterial fungal and nematode diseases of various crops. The emphasis and prime importance is given on the development of resistant varieties and now it has been possible to manage the various diseases in integrated manner. But the failure of resistant gene in a variety sometimes has been observed and hence the scientists are busy to manage the diseases in biotechnological manners. The biotechnology and molecular biology has found to be of great help and developing transgenic varieties in addition to regular hybridizations. The volume on biotechnological approaches for the integrated management of crop diseases will be great help to solve the problems of crop disease management. The volume consists of 26 review articles on biotechnological approaches by very well known international scientists throughout the India on different crops.

About this Item: Scientific Publishers, 2011. Hardcover. Condition: New. Plant diseases often are the worst natural hazards in agriculture, horticulture and forestry. New diseases and new biotypes of existing disease producing organisms appear from time to time in more virulent forms. The most startling aspect of plant diseases is that their management cost us a huge sum every year with serious consequences in environment and human health. Therefore, integrated disease management practices need to be refined and adopted to reduce the crop losses. In this book, the current status of various aspects of integrated disease management in fruits, vegetable, ornamentals, cereals, pulses, oilseeds, medicinal and forest plants etc. has been analyzed. Major focus is on the integrated disease management in horticultural crops. Emphasis has been given to the use of non-chemical methods like cultural practices, soil solarization, plant growth promoting microorganisms, organic amendments, botanicals and biocontrol agents. It is hoped that the book will serve as an important guide to the plant pathologists, horticulturists, nematologists, microbiologists, mushroom scientists, breeders and students. Contents: 1. Studies on epidemiology and management of Marssonina blotch, the cause of premature leaf fall in apple - J.N. Sharma, P.K. Sharma and Anita Sharma 2.
