Environmental biology is similar to ecology. But while both fields study ecosystems, environmental biology places more emphasis on the biological aspect. Also, while ecology often focuses on the interactions between species in the same ecosystem, environmental biology focuses on the impacts of human activities on those ecosystems and the species living in them. The interdisciplinary field of environmental biology focuses on the relationships among plants, animals and their surroundings, including their responses to environmental stimuli. Environmental biology is closely linked to and often coupled with evolutionary biology, since both involve an exploration of how organisms adapt to changing conditions. The environment and ecosystem, lack of concern amongst planners and ecologists about the side effects of the development projects, gaps in information and in training personnel, absence of multi-disciplinary approach to development project, and lack of systematic information, data and feed back system. This book is a highly informative source on global warming and climate change–issues that are perhaps the greatest threat to this planet. It will be a valuable reference tool for environmental scientists, activists and scholars in the field.
