CONTEMPORARY STUDIES

Ecological problems require to be handled with an integrated approach, for they are intimately connected to the biological endowments as well as to social and cultural characteristics. Adaptation and resource management, for instance, are both biological and cultural issues. The present volume shows the direction to integrated research on environmental topics. The volume shows the importance of participation in tribal and peasant development, macro-and micro-environmental designs, and eco-friendly development. This volume will be of great use as a reference book to students and research workers in this field of Environmental Studies, Life Sciences and Social Sciences.
