Biology Question Bank for Entrance Exams

For AIPMT Main other Medical Entrance Exam Prepration, Question Bank for Biology Environmental Issues is given below.
IMPORTANT POINTS

Any undesirable changes in physical, chemical or biological characteristics of air, land or soil is called pollution. The substances which bring such changes are called pollutants. Air pollution is mainly due to burning of fossil fuel like coal, petroleum, automobiles and industries. They are harmful to living organism and must be reduced. Unwanted sound creates noise pollution which can be controlled by reducing high intensity of sound.

Polluted water causes many diseases. Most common source of this is domestic waste and industrial effluents which reduce dissolved oxygen and increases BOD.Water pollutants rich in nutrients like nitrogen and phosphorus cause eutrophication thus induces excessive growth of aquatic plants. Increasing concentration of nonbiodegradable toxic waste like DDT at various tropic level of food chain is known as biomagnifications.

Disposal of hazardous waste like Radioactive and e-waste requires additional efforts. Agrochemicals like pesticides and fertilizers and plastic creates soil pollution. Major environmental issues like green house effect and depletion of ozone layer in stratosphere is due to more emission of gases like CO2, CH4, CFCs and nitrous oxides and deforestation. This increases global temperature and brings drastic change in the atmosphere affecting living organisms. Depletion of ozone layer due to CFCs increases skin cancer, mutation and other disorders.

Government of India has introduced concept of Joint Forest Management to work closely with the local communities for protecting and managing forests. To save ourforests and environment

Concept of Joint Forest Management has introduced by Govt of India helps in bringing forest personality and local communities to work jointly for protecting and managing forests.
