Dr. Ashok Kumar Badoni

Abstract


Ecology is the study of the interactions between biotic organisms and their environment. Ecological attitudes are related to ecological issues and problems. Different anthropogenic activities creates a number of environmental problems like pollution ,soil erosion, green house effect, ozone layer depletion, global warming and degradation of natural resources.  All these human created changes are responsible for global climate change. Increasing urbanization and industrialization creates a number of environmental problems and crises. These activities have disturbed the ecological balance and have resulted in loss of natural resources and extinction of flora and fauna. Therefore environmental equilibrium has to be maintained through environmental awareness and education programs. With the help of proper interaction between environment and human beings we can maintain environmental equilibrium.

Keywords
