About the Book :- Constantly increasing environmental awareness and on readers demand, the book has deservedly earned its fourth edition. While retaining all its basic features, the text has been completely revised and updated assimilating necessary amendments while keeping its originality and presentation pattern intact. Latest information on topics of various Ecosystems, Ecological Pyramids, Biodiversity Conservation, Environmental Pollution, Population Growth etc. has been included. New additions like Global Cooling, El Nino and La Nina, Sunderland (hot spots) will further augment merit of the text. Acute shortage of electricity is adversely affecting development of the Country. The estimated demand for energy will be four times more by 2025. At present, there is no clear and definite vision to fulfil such a massive requirement of electricity in the future. Nuclear energy seems to be perhaps the only alternate that the government is focusing on. This problem has been freshly evaluated in the text. Inclusion of recent data of census (2011), urbanisation and automobile pollution, new boxes and updated special environment calendar will further enhance its utility inducing environmental awareness. Introductory contribution of Shri Kailash Satyarthi, the recent Nobel Laureate for Peace (2014) is appropriately cited.

About the Book The present book contains the most relevant and up-to-date literature on phytoremediation technology with the aim to develop a basic and state-of-the-art volume on various theoretical and practical aspects in the realm of Phytoremediation. Most of the available books on the subject are edited volumes and present fragmented information. The present volume has the advantage of coherence of the subject matter which has been presented in an organized sequence. This compendium would serve a great purpose for all those students, teachers, scientists and research workers who are willing to deal with different problems of plant-soil relationships. As information on most of the techniques used in phytoremediation would be available at hand this would ease the job of workers in the field. This information would be of much importance to persons such as botanists, foresters, environmentalists, physiologists, nutritionists, agronomists as well as biogeochemists and persons particularly engaged in revegetation programmes. The book begins by examining the problem, describing different type of wastes, their origin and production and various disposal systems, tailings, tailing dams and the effects of contaminants on biota, waste characteristics and the strategies available for remediation. Various subsets of phytoremediation technology such as Phytoextraction, Phytovoltalization, Phytostabilization, Phytodegradation, Rhizofiltration and Rhizodegradation have been discussed in detail. The text moves on to focus the latest information about elemental accumulation in plants, their uptake and translocation, role of phytochelators and phytosiderophores, the concept of accumulators and hyperaccumulators. Choice of plant species and methods of their establishment, considerations adopted in selection of plant species, the methods used and the most suitable agronomic practices to be adopted have been described. A chapter on conditioning alternatives describing various amendments such as FYM, poultry manure, sewage sludge, domestic refuse, saw dust, biogas slurry, fly ash, biochar, zeolite, bone meal, fertilizers, liming and the use of micro-organisms including Mycorrhizae, PSBs and Rhizobium has also been provided. A chapter deals with ways and means to enhance phytoextraction and its advantages and disadvantages. Attention has also been drawn towards advantages, limitations, prospects and economics of phytoremediation technology. Further, a chapter on biotechnological approaches to phytoremediation has been included. In the last, to trigger interest amongst teachers and students of higher-learning in the domain of phytoremediation, certain case studies which are based on the work carried out in author’s laboratory have been included. These would be illustrative for other such type of work to be carried out in India and abroad. CONTENTS Chapter 1. Contaminated lands Chapter 2. Waste characteristics Chapter 3.

About the Book :- The global environment is a complex mix of interlinked processes, about which observation can tell us a great deal. But how can we use current observation to model future events, or to predict the consequences of scenarios that don't yet exist? Environmental Modelling: An Introduction shows how modelling can be used to explain experimental observations, and how these observations - and the data gathered - can be extrapolated to help us understand new environments and processes, and to solve environmental problems. The book begins by explaining why modelling is such a powerful experimental tool, before walking the reader through the process of constructing a model - what the key considerations are, and how different models should be used to probe different types of problem. It then illustrates how models are actively applied, before introducing a series of case studies to show how modelling has been used in real environmental and ecological studies. Accompanied by an extensive Online Resource Centre to support active, hands-on learning on the part of the student, Environmental Modelling: An Introduction is the ideal resource for any student who needs to develop a working understanding of modelling, and how to apply modelling in their own research. Contents :- 1. Introduction 2. Model Development 3. Model Evaluation 4. Application of Models 5. Environmental and Ecological Models in the Real World About the Authors :- Jo Smith, Reader in Soil Organic Matter and Nutrient Modelling, School of Biological Sciences, University of Aberdeen and Pete Smith, Professor of Soils and Global Change, School of Biological Sciences, University of Aberdeen.

DESCRIPTION Formally established by the EPA nearly 15 years ago, the concept of green chemistry is beginning to come of age. Although several books cover green chemistry and chemical engineering, none of them transfer green principles to science and technology in general and their impact on the future. Defining industrial ecology, Environmental Science and Technology: A Sustainable Approach to Green Science and Technology, Second Edition provides a general overview of green science and technology and their essential role in ensuring environmental sustainability. Written by a leading expert, the book provides the essential background for understanding green science and technology and how they relate to sustainability. In addition to the hydrosphere, atmosphere, geosphere, and biosphere traditionally covered in environmental science books, this book is unique in recognizing the anthrosphere as a distinct sphere of the environment. The author explains how the anthrosphere can be designed and operated in a manner that does not degrade environmental quality and, in most favorable circumstances, may even enhance it. With the current emphasis shifting from end-of-pipe solutions to pollution prevention and control of resource consumption, green principles are increasingly moving into the mainstream. This book provides the foundation not only for understanding green science and technology, but also for taking its application to the next level. CONTENTS 1.

Never before has the quest to balance the needs of people, the environment, and the economy been so important. While sustainability has been widely taken up by governments and business, the world has continued to move in increasingly unsustainable directions, from continued dependence on fossil energy to rising greenhouse gas emissions, and erosion of biodiversity. We know what the right thing to do is, but somehow we cannot make the changes that are needed, and so we continue with business as usual, producing business-as-usual results. Based on more than fifteen years of research and practice, Environmental and Economic Sustainability introduces the environmental and economic sustainability assessment (EESA), a new way to make decisions that meets the challenges of the 21st century. Incorporating elements of life-cycle analysis, risk assessment, cost-benefit analysis, and comprehensive sensitivity analysis, EESA provides a fully quantitative, objective, and rational way to include all of the social, environmental, and economic issues relevant to a decision into one comprehensive analysis. The author demonstrates how to apply EESA using examples across a number of major industries, including petroleum, mining, and public utilities, and covering key issues such as water, greenhouse gases, waste, contaminated sites, and renewable energy. Ultimately, the solutions to problems of the 21st century will come from understanding the tremendous value that the environment provides, and reflecting that value within decision-making at every level so that society as a whole thrives. This book demonstrates that while business-as-usual approaches can be sub-optimal, spending on sustainable outcomes must be balanced with anticipated benefits. It demonstrates how to communicate with stakeholders in a transparent process which provides a robust view of how various options compare over a wide range of possible future conditions, using a language that everyone understands: money.

Environmental decisions present themselves every day in forms large and small. Should I walk to work today? What about global warming—should I write my congressperson and demand that the government do something? Should I put solar panels on my roof? Should I get a different car or turn up the temperature on the air conditioner or get water-saving fixtures for my bathroom? As environmentalism has become more complex, with potentially far-reaching impacts, it seems to be outpacing our individual understanding of the basic issues. A fresh view of modern environmentalism, Fundamentals of Practical Environmentalism challenges readers to integrate concern for the environment with the necessities of daily living. This book introduces practical environmentalism as a new approach to sustainable environmental progress. It presents a four-part framework that includes environmental degradation, resource conservation, economic progress, and personal benefit as the four pillars to address when attempting to act on behalf of the environment. The book consists of three main sections. Looking at historical and ethical perspectives, the first section examines the theoretical basis for practical environmentalism. The second section explains each of the four pillars in detail and demonstrates how to combine them into a holistic metric that guides environmental actions. The final section presents a number of case studies that run the gamut from small personal choices to the biggest and most contentious environmental dilemmas of the day. It shows how practical environmentalism via the four pillars can lead individuals toward better environmental decisions and an improved chance for true environmental progress. This timely and practical book will be of use to activists, policymakers, researchers, resource managers, government agencies, and students alike, as well as anyone confronted with environmental choices in their daily lives.

Simple, clear, and to the point, Probability and Statistics Applications for Environmental Science delineates the fundamentals of statistics, imparting a basic understanding of the theory and mechanics of the calculations. User-friendliness, uncomplicated explanations, and coverage of example applications in the environmental field set this book apart. Striking a balance between theory and applied mathematics, the material is divided into three parts. Part I sets the stage with coverage of principles and fundamentals, such as set notation, probability distributions, and the estimation of the mean and variance. Part II discusses traditional statistics applications, centering around the uses of probability distributions, including how they relate to reliability and failure theory. The authors elucidate many of the important distributions, Monte Carlo methods, and fault and event trees. Part III delves into what some have come to define as contemporary statistics. It covers hypothesis testing, Student's t and chi-square tests, regression analysis, analysis of variance (ANOVA), and nonparametric tests. An introduction to Design of Experiments is provided in the Appendix. The book's coverage is thorough, its presentation logical and geared to student's needs as well as the needs of statistics/probability challenged professionals. The authors, known for their meticulously accurate, articulate, and practical writing style, master the difficult task of explaining very complicated subject matter in a way that is easily understood.
