Environmental problems of pollution and degradation are a major source of concern globally. At all levels, efforts are being made to protect and preserve the environment from further deterioration. Measures are being taken at international, national and regional levels by governments and organisations to spread the awareness and concern for the environment and ecosystem, but these are not yet yielding the expected returns. Research has indicated that humans must be guided by values, beliefs, and individual motivating factors if attitudes are to be converted in actual behaviour. This book presents an empirical research study on the relationship between the measures of ecological concern and its demographic and psychosocial determinants. It discusses the various models of environmental concern and tracks the human-environment relationship as studied by environmental psychologists and sociologists. The book will be of great use to the students, academics, researchers and scholars in a variety of fields, including human ecology, eco-philosophy, sustainable development, environmental psychology, environmental sociology, environmental economics, environmental studies, and conservation psychology, and will further the reader's understanding of the role of human factors in ecological protection. It will also be of value to policy makers and the general reader interested in understanding behavioural and psychosocial perspectives on environmental concern.
