"Values and Morality can compensate for an intellectual and talent shortage, but talent and intelligence can never make up for lack of values and morality"
Ecology & Environment

The work on "ECOLOGY & ENVIRONMENT" was the outcome of the difficulty felt by many students in understanding our own environment, who asked very simple questions and whose answers and explanations, were lacking in any book. Hence this book, which is an attempt to solve these problems.

In this 21st century, the awareness about the environment and the ever-increasing danger due to pollution or otherwise have made it prerequisite for everyone of us to have a better understanding of the magnificent world we inherit and inhabit. The real world in which we live remains alien to us till date. Even after a good education we remain ignorant of all the resources our country has inherited.

The book is an attempt for the whole mankind to let it know the complex world with its natural features and phenomena. The concept is to make the world our own by knowing all its part clearly. Even to this day the world is an incredibly rich storehouse for us and for future generations. But we must learn to treat it with respect and gratitude.
