Environment is nothing but the nature composed of both biotic (living) and abiotic (non living) factors.
It has profound effect over the living organisms. It also exerts influence over their metabolic activities.
It causes even evolution to occur as the environment is dynamic and ever changing. Its scope is so wide that
it has got relation with every science and scientific aspects in general and biology in particular which makes
this subject multidisciplinary. Its study makes the man to understand its importance. He would be able to take
necessary steps to protect it though nature can take care of the human beings. Undoubtedly Environmental Science
will be a growing field for the future with the growing concerns about our global warming and climate changes.
The problem of environmental management is becoming a matter of great concern not only in India, but all over
the world which makes it a global issue. The skyrocketing population, urbanization and industrialization have
exponentially played a major role in augmenting environmental problems. No person can be expert in all these
fields but environmental scientists are broadly educated. They have a general familiarity with other scientific
disciplines that enables them to see how other perspectives contribute to building a complete picture of a
problem and its potential solutions. Basic study in physics, chemistry, biology, and geosciences are expected
of the environmental scientist.
