Ecorestoration for sustainability, edited by Arnab Banerjee [and three others]

Contributor
Summary
Environmental degradation is causing severe impacts on the various Earth ecosystems. Unsustainable development and anthropogenic pressure have altered the natural balance. From this perspective, sustainability has become a major issue to frame a greener and cleaner Earth for future generations. It can be argued that the worst example of unsustainable development is habitat degradation. Therefore, ecorestoration and other ecological practices are becoming increasingly important in our march toward sustainability. This book covers all the aspects of ecorestoration and sustainability and how various areas intersect in this space
