About this book

Ecological inter-dependence among all forms of creations giving rise to environmental balance at global, national, regional and local levels needs to be identified, maintained and preserved for the sake of genetic diversity, growth and desired equilibrium. Modernisation, industrialisation, urbanisation and consumptive culture, which gets priority over conservation of natural resources including forests and wildlife, appears to be pervading and determined to degrade all kinds of environments on the earth's surface. Deforestation enroute to desertification and destruction of wildlife affecting drainage and agricultural operations, and pollution-inherent industries jeopardising environmental equilibrium and systems urgently demand environmental management. The most modern technological innovation for obtaining latest and repetitive informations about all types of phenomena existing and ever-changing process on the visible earth's landscape through remote sensing satellites provides ample scope to scientists and planners, strategists and policy decision-makers.

There are twelve chapters in the book which are designed to stand alone as well as inter-linked. The book is divided into three broad sections, Environment, Forests & Wildlife, and Geographical Information Systems. The papers have been contributed by experts in various fields, highlighting the importance, scope and techniques of managing the enviornment and forests through remote sensing.
