In the second edition of Ecological Meltdown: impact of unchecked human growth on the earth’s natural systems, the authors discuss the destruction of biodiversity and ecosystems due to human actions. Apart from warning about the impending ecological meltdown and analysing the causes behind it, the book deals with the solutions that need to be urgently adopted by the global civil society and national governments. The book is an invaluable resource for policymakers and institutions in the forestry, wildlife, energy, rural development, and environment sectors. It will also prove beneficial for conservationists, scientists, researchers, and students of environmental science. A new chapter on “Time for energy transition” has been added in this edition.
