Sustainable Resources Management (2 Vol)
The erosion of natural resources is one of the most serious environmental issues of our times and thus requires sustainable development. This reference book aims to provide a general framework to ensure sustainable management of natural resources in order to improve quality of life as well as living standards. It contains chapters on various facets of natural resources in order to improve quality of life as well as living standards. It contains chapters on various facets of natural resources such as biodiversity, municipal waste water, bioremediation, probiotics, phosphorus pollution, water pollution, fly ash, bio-surfactants, paper and pulp waste water, urban wastes, radioactive wastes and municipal solid wastes and environment and tourism. The book presents an upto date and comprehensive account of the important existing and potential natural resources. It considers each major resource in terms of its value to all living beings, exploitation and degradation and finally it can be restored and managed. The book contains 19 chapters. It has been divided into two volumes. We hope that this book will be of immense value for students, teachers, researchers, conservationist, policy makers and planners having concern for the conservation and sustainable management of natural resources.
