Nature has boomed us with a large number of natural resources which have made our life prosperous in different ways. The study of ecology reveals that there exists an ecological balance between the organisms i.e. (plants, animals, and Man) and their physical environment.
Of all organism, Man being dominant and intelligent has modified this environment more extensively than any other organism. Today not only earth is in his control, the outer space is also not untouched.
Rapid increasing human population:
The pressure of rapidly increasing human population is so great that he is exploiting natural resources at an alarming rate and in doing so he is adversely damaging the environment. Due to his greedy exploitation of natural resources, ecological malpractices, and shortsightedness he is confronted today with a number of serious environmental problems.
Man being dominant and intelligent has modified this environment more extensively than any other organism. Today not only earth is in his control, the outer space is also not untouched. He has modified weather to suit his needs. Natural resources are being consumed at his own sweet will. Flora and Fauna are being controlled. Thousands of toxic chemicals unknown to nature before are poured into the soil, air and water.
1. Desertification of land.
4. Consequently mass destruction of Fauna and Flora
5. Fragmentation of natural habitats
Problems and Resources:
The environmental problems are generally classified into two 2 categories.
1. Resources management and conservation
2. Environment pollution
Resources are all those requirement of an organism, population or an ecosystem which help in accumulation of energy by their increased availability. The natural resources includes all the LAND, MINERALS, WATER, VEGETATION, WILDLIFE and SCENARIES all of which remain useful to human society in one way or the other.
Natural resources are of three 3 types.
1. BIOLOGICAL RESOURCES:
Also called as Renewable resources. As they can grow in quantity through reproduction and utilization of simple substances. INCLUDES: Fish, poultry, forests, soil, wood, crop etc.
2. PHYSICAL RESOURCES:
Also called as Non Renewable resources. As they are available in limited amounts and once consumed can not be replaced or that can only be replaced over a very long periods of time. INCLUDES Fossils fuels, Metallic ores, Minerals and their salt.
3. UNALTERED RESOURCES:
Those resources that are used outside the human body. Example scenery, wildlife, water.
This is all about the conservation and wildlife management.
The rapid decline in the quality and quantity of natural resources has led to the concern for their conservation.
CONSERVATION is one of the most significant application of ecology. According to Webster's Dictionary, Conservation is the act or process or controlled use and syntematic protection of natural resources as forests, wildlife, water ways. In essence, conservation is not mere preservation or hoarding of resources for immediate use but such prudent use by the present generation that their benefits could equally be shared by the future generations. In simple words, Conservation refer to the scientific utilization of the resources by maintaining a sustained yield and also the quality of the resources. From the aesthetic viewpoint, conservation includes also the maintaince of natural parks, wilderness areas, historic sites and wildlife.
