Environmental Pollution, Biodiversity, and Sustainable Development: Issues and Remediation provides an extensive summary of biodiversity. It is the result of the assistance of environmentalists, researchers, policy experts, and academicians from across the globe sharing their research and knowledge on biodiversity and ways to mitigate the threat from climate change, over-utilization of natural resources, pollution, and more. The volume considers that biodiversity encompasses a wide range of biological processes, ranging from genetic diversity, species, populations, communities and ecosystems to landscapes and regions.
This book, written by a panel of international experts in biodiversity, conservation biology, and evolution from different countries, including Iran, Pakistan, India, Bangladesh, Tajikistan, Russia, and others, highlights the human impact on biodiversity hotspots on a global scale.
The volume provides an abundance of valuable research for faculty, students, and researchers in environmental sciences, government agencies, and many others.

“Designed for those students and researchers who wish to become familiar with basic and advanced features of biodiversity, the output of these efforts can also be implemented to ensure sustainability and preservation of biodiversity. This volume provides a broad overview of different promising aspects of biodiversity. Various chapters written by international experts in their respective specialties not only allow the reader to understand better the wide range of medical problems linked with environmental pollution, biodiversity, and sustainable development, but also to propose strategies to reduce the threat. The book should be useful to all those working on biodiversity, pollution eradication, and sustainable development.”
