About this Item: Atlantic Publishers & Distributors (P) Ltd., 2009. Hardcover. Condition: New. Some major developments witnessed during the 2th century have greatly impacted human beings as well as the planet Earth?the only known planet to support life. Incalculable harm is being caused to natural habitats, eco-systems and environment by unprecedented growth in population resulting in great rise in consumption; rapid increase in urbanization and industrialisation; dramatic changes in global economic environment; and reckless use of mineral and forest resources, etc. It is ironical that some of the achievements of the 2th century themselves pose the challenges for the present 21st century. As of 28, the world population has reached 6.66 billion. According to data from the CIA?s World Fact Book (27), world human population increases by 211,9 people every day. With 6.66 billion people inhabiting this earth, and the global economy over the next 25 years could expand from $35 trillion in 25 to $72 trillion in 23 (World Bank). Such high pace of human and economic activity is putting pressure on global life support systems. Many symptoms of environmental crises illustrate what can go wrong if resources are used in ways that cause environmental damage. If has long been recognized that the future of this planet and its people is intimately tied up with our ability to maintain and preserve life support systems provided by nature. This makes it our duty to ensure that all uses of renewable resources are sustainable; the diversity of life on Earth is preserved; and damage to natural environmental systems is minimized. The book contains articles by erudite scholars and environmentalists who have deeply analysed various issues related to environmental degradation and made valuable suggestions to deal with pertinent problems. They have laid emphasis on sustainable development which has become the catchword in the domain of intellectual activism and accentuates the notion that economic growth should proceed only in so far as natural resources are recycled rather than depleted, renewable sources of energy like solar and wind energy are developed, effective strategies for preserving forests are made, biodiversity is maintained, and clean air, potable water and fertile lands are protected. The book will be highly beneficial for students, researchers in the field of environment, policymakers, executives and industrialists. It will create awareness among the readers about the need to adopt sustainable practices, protect natural habitats and preserve biodiversity. Contents : Preface; 1.

It could be seen globally that the soil erosion has accelerated desertification is on increase and the massive deforestation has reduced the vegetation cover. The magnitude or degradation of environment and resources depletion has perturbed the people and the governments all over the world. The geographers have also shown their sensitivity towards environmental issues in both teaching and research. World Commission on Environment and Development is also taking up the concerted efforts in promoting global cooperation for the protection of environment as a precondition towards sustainable development. Recognizing the need for both short term and long term strategies for the monitoring and management of the environment and natural resources the present volume brings together 24 papers divided into three sections viz environment human resources and land resources written by eminent geographers and environmentalists.

Global food security has been threatened by climate change and has become one of the most important challenges in the 21st century to supply sufficient food and nutrition for the increasing population while sustaining the already stressed environment. Studies on impacts of climate change and adaptation strategies to overcome such problems are increasingly becoming major areas of concerns for the scientists, researchers and policy makers. The climate change impacts on the production of crops like rice, wheat, maize, soybean and water resources in the river basin catchments have been studies by researchers in many parts of the world using simulation modelling. Crop productivity and soil water balance have been studied with crop growth models by using parameters from different climate models. Meanwhile, climate variability is one of the most significant factors influencing year to year crop production, even in high yield and high-technology agricultural areas. In recent years, more and more attention has been paid to the risks associated with climate change and associated problems and hence on productivity of crops in agriculture. Water availability will be one of the limiting constrains for crop production and food security. Therefore, it is an urgent need to determine the impacts of climate change on crop production in order to employ possible adaptation strategies in farm level as well as regional level. In the last decade, crop simulation models have become essential tools to support field research and agricultural productivity in developing and d. Seller Inventory # 115587
