Fundamentals of Environmental Biology has been conceived to bring different aspects of environmental biology under one head. The purpose of this book is to fill the gap between basic books of ecology or environmental science and advanced environmental biotechnology in an appropriate manner. Divided in two parts, the book contains fourteen chapters. First part deals with the topics related with ecology and environmental sciences and second part deals with environmental biotechnology aspects.
It will help the students of botany, zoology, biotechnology, and environmental sciences or engineering, as environmental biology is a multidisciplinary subject and involves various issues like ecological issues, global environmental problems, socio-economic scenario along with modern fields such as molecular ecology, etc. Although the book is primarily designed for undergraduate and postgraduate students, it also provides information in a precise way to the teachers, researchers and also to the people working in NGOs related to environmental aspects or problems.
