Index. "The concept, knowledge and mass awareness about our biological diversity is one of the most talked about subject of 21st century.
Obviously because human survival is directly linked to its ambient biological diversity of kaleidoscopic nature. As a result imparting knowledge to our future generation, on this subject has become most essential for the sake of posterity.
However, the subject is vast like an ocean, embracing vast array of floral and faunal diversity including the microorganisms present over the planet earth. The conservation of this entire spectrum of diversity is(less)

The Lake is situated 30 Km North of Kollam. The area of the Lake is 3.
73 Km2. It is a source of drinking water of Sasthamkotta, Kollam and adjoining areas.
It is an internationally recognized wetland having the status of Ramsar Site from November 2002 onwards. The Sasthamkotta Lake is surrounded on three sides by hillocks and on the south by a bund which separated the Lake from the surrounding water bodies and paddy fields.
The River Kallada flows through the southern side. The Lake receives its water from precipitation, surface flow from its catchment areas and from underground springs.
The Lake has the capacity to hold 223390 million liters of water(less)

Some of the species on earth are rapidly approaching decimation and as a result these are endangered. Unfortunately, prior to independence of India in 1947 no adequate attention towards protecting animals from decimation and extermination was given.
Practical solutions to this problem are yet to be evolved to protect threatened wildlife from total extinction. Here an attempt has been made to review the situation in the pre-and post-independent India by way of collecting adequate data about wild life resources from various parts of the country.

Rapid and unplanned economic development threatens to fragment and devour the wildlife habitats that remain. Plant and animal species are joining the ranks of the critically endangered at faster rates than ever before.
Using the Sariska Tiger Reserve as one of its major anchors, this book analyses the historical, socio-political, and biological contexts of nature conservation in the country in an effort to identify the malaise underlying India’s dominant conservation paradigm, which is primarily one of top-down control and exclusion. It then surveys alternative approaches to conservation emerging in India and elsewhere which attempt to reconcile social equity with biodiversity goals.
The author argues that a broad-based participatory approach to conservation, accommodating both use-based and preservationist paradigms, is necessary if we are to see India’s extraordinary wildlife survive into the next century(less)
