Ecology And Environmental Studies by S. K. Garg
Book Summary:

The excessive growth of human population, increasing from about 1 billion in the year 1800 to about 6.7 billion at the start of the year 2008, has resulted in enormous urbanisation and expansion of agricultural, industrial, and commercial activities on our fragile planet- Earth. The large scale use of fossil fuels (coal, oil and gas) in industries as well as in automobiles have accelerated and resulted in wide spread pollution of our environment, at local, regional, as well as global levels. Not only our physical environment consisting of air, water, and land, have been polluted, but even the biological bodies such as plants and animals, providing food to humans, have been contaminated.
