About the Books:
Lake Kolleru - Environmental Status (Past and Present), This book highlights the Present and Past information on the physico-chemical properties, geographical features, ecology, biodiversity profiles besides huge potential of capture and culture fisheries of Lake Kolleru authored by various experts. It also depicts a holistic approach in the assessment of the impacts of anthropogenic activities on this fragile wetland. Most of the papers emphasize the immediate need for the conservation of the lake. Although trends are recognized, there is a need for an effective strategy that could minimize the threats and some papers throw light on the strategies for the sustainable management of this ecologically important interface. Keeping in view the unique and significant role of Lake Kolleru in protecting ecological balance, the information presented in different papers in the book will be very useful in providing a holistic concept for ecologists, biologists, research students, planners, statutory and regulatory authorities.
