About The Book

Ecology is the scientific study of the way in which the plants, animals, and people are related to each other and to their environment; and reproduction is the act or the process of producing babies, young animals, or plants. Ecology and animal reproduction forms an important part of curriculum of almost all colleges and universities in India and abroad. Although a host of books on the ecology are available, we did feel the need of a book which can provide information on the diversity of animals inhabiting various ecological niches together with the reproductive strategies adopted by them and to carry out diverse kinds of reproductive-ecological analyses spreading across several types of ecosystem sustaining different kind of flora and fauna. This volume has been written in a lucid and easy to understand language dealing elaborately with following topics: Animal Ecology; Nematology in India, Freshwater cladocera, Mass production of pulmonate molluscs, Himalayan fish fauna, Heavy metal pollution in freshwater, Growth of the Indian major carps fry, Nutritional ecology of carp fmgerlings, Ectoparasitic diseases in freshwater fishes, Distribution of crocodile salamander in east Nepal, Farming of saltwater crocodiles, Population trends of Indian Mugger crocodiles, Avifauna in Karnataka, Computer in wildlife-communication with birds, Status and conservation of bird fauna in Kerala, Behavioural observations on rhesus monkey; Animal Reproduction; Breeding of the earthworm, Oviposition behaviour of the stem borer, Action of quinines in insect pest control, Hunter reduviide utilization in biological control, Impact of mercury on hypothalamic nuclear center in a freshwater teleost, Annual sexual rhythm in freshwater turtles, Reproductive biology of olive ridley sea turtle, Endocrine disruptor and reproductive health, Alleviation of testicular toxicity in albino rats, Environmental and occupational exposure to metals and reproduction. The book will be of immense help and hopefully shall fulfill the needs of students, teachers and researchers engaged in the field of animal ecology and reproduction to some extent.
