This book is written in accordance with the syllabus prescribed by HPU for Environmental Studies for engineering students. Various means can be adopted for creating mass awareness about the importance of conserving the environment. Making Environment Education as an compulsory subject can be a step towards this awareness. Media is the most important means hence the Chapter 1 deals with the Environmental Awareness. Chapter 2 discusses the various types of Eco-systems and Cycles. Chapter 3 deals with the various organisations and societies that were formed to not only work towards saving the environment, but also creating an awareness in the people about the importance of living in harmony with the nature. Chapter 4 discusses a few Environmental Models. Man cannot survive without Air, Water, Land and Agriculture etc. Also wild-life forms an inseparable part of these, hence their conservation is extremely essential. Chapter 5 studies these various Natural Resources. Chapter 6 is one of the most interesting chapter, it discusses Biodiversity which is a precious gem imbedded in the beautiful jewels of mother earth. Soil Erosion, and Noise Pollution are a matters of extreme concern hence lessons 7 and 8 discuss these topics in detail. Unless and until man becomes wise enough to save his environment he?ll soon perish, Chapter 9 discusses all about the complex relationship of man with his environment. Environment Quality Management is the call of the day and lessons 10 and 11 discuss it in detail. Chapter 12 discusses Environmental Impact Analysis. Chapter 13 the last yet not the least as it deals with a very important topic, that is, the Environmental Laws.
