The present encyclopaedia has been formulated as a comprehensive series of books which looks into the issue of pollution in an insightful manner, enabling readers to understand the issue in all its complexity. The first book, Environmental Pollution: Causes, Effects and Control, is a precursor to the rest of the books in the series, comprehending the multi-fangled beast that is pollution in a panoramic manner, specifically concentrating its focus on the problem of mitigating all these issues. The books on air pollution, water pollution and noise pollution are ever more detailed and through in their approach, focusing on the effects of these forms of pollution on living organisms as well as the general environment. Biotechnology and Pollution Control is a text which devotes itself to understanding the crucial role biotechnology can play in bringing solutions to the crisis of pollution.
It is hoped that the contents of the books, with their wide-ranging and in-depth content, critical insights, philosophical perspectives and detailed analysis of the issue prove to be immensely resourceful to the readers. With illustrations and diagrams providing the visual information beyond the power of words, the books should also prove to be informative referrals for those in the field of environmental science. Any suggestions for further improvement are most welcome.
