Water is vital to life, maintenance of ecological balance, economic development, and sustenance of civilization. Planning and management of water resources and its optimal use are a matter of urgency for most countries of the world, and even more so for India with a huge population. Growing population and expanding economic activities exert increasing demands on water for varied needs--domestic, industrial, agricultural, power generation, navigation, recreation, etc. In India, agriculture is the highest user of water. The past three decades have witnessed numerous advances as well as have presented intriguing challenges and exciting opportunities in hydrology and water resources. Compounding them has been the growing environmental consciousness. Nowhere are these challenges more apparent than in India. As we approach the twenty first century, it is entirely fitting to take stock of what has been accomplished and what remains to be accomplished, and what accomplishments are relevant, with particular reference to Indian conditions."

The four volumes in this set cover major aspects of hydrology and water resources, including surface water hydrology, subsurface water hydrology, water quality hydrology, and water resources planning management. Some of the articles and state-of-the-art papers have been written by leading experts from around the globe. The books reflect the water resources technology as practised in India and the Indian subcontinent which would be of great value to water resources professionals in the west. The books are of interest to academicians, graduate students, practising engineers, water engineers, as well as water policy makers. Those wishing to further pursue the topics covered will find the books to be of special interest and value.

India is endowed with varied topographical features, such as high mountains, extensive plateaus, and wide plains traversed by mighty rivers. Divided into four sections this book provides a comprehensive overview of water resources of India. A detailed treatment of all major river basins is provided. This is followed by a discussion on major uses of water in India. Finally, the closing chapters discuss views on water management policy for India.

The present book has great Mycological significance and will update the knowledge of Resupinate Aphyllophorales of Maharashtra, which presently lacks in the scenario of Indian Mycology. This book will be of immense help for further studies and investiga-tions. Taking into consideration the taxonomic study of Wood Rotting Fungi, this kind of approach is studied for the first time for understanding thoroughly the compilation of the Resupinate Aphyllophorales from a particular region. This book will facilitate further understanding of important pathogens from the vegetation of Maharashtra. The major work deals with the species studied from the family Corticiaceae with non-poroid hymenium; Polyporaceae and Hymenochaetaceae with poroid hymenium. Main aim is to provide an entry point for the students in to the World of Aphyllophorales. The book is supplemented with an index of genera, index of hosts/ substrata along with fungi recorded thereon and the list of references. Through this book readers are going to get a comprehensive guide of Resupinate Aphyllophorales. The present book would prove useful to Mycologist, Plant pathologists, Plant Biotechnologists and also to research students and teachers alike in the disciplines of Mycology and Plant Pathology.

Das vorliegende Buch über Karsthydrographie und physische Speläologie ver bindet zwei Sachgebiete, die bisher getrennt behandelt worden sind. Beide Wissensgebiete sind ihre eigenen Wege gegangen, weniger aus sachlicher Ver schiedenheit, als wegen der unterschiedlichen Betrachtungsweise. In der Karst hydrographie steht die Beschreibung unterirdischer Gewässer mit ihrem physi kalischen und chemischen Verhalten im Mittelpunkt, in der physischen Speläo logie die unterirdischen Hohlräume mit ihrem Inhalt, die meist durch eben diese Wässer geschaffen worden sind. Diese Hohlräume lassen sich nur mit Hilfe karsthydrographischer Kenntnisse richtig interpretieren, geben aber daftir Hin weise auf das Verhalten der Karstgewässer. Karsthydrographie und physische Speläologie sind somit zwei Seiten des unterirdischen Karstphänomens und sollten unter einem einheitlichen Blickwinkel betrachtet werden. Das Buch wendet sich an Geologen, Hydrogeologen, Geomorphologen, Geographen und Karstforscher, vor allem Speläologen, sowie an alle Höhlen freunde, unter ihnen im besonderen die Laienforscher. Der Inhalt muß daher zwei Gruppen ansprechen, einerseits die akademisch Geschulten, seien es Hoch schuldozenten, Hochschulabsolventen oder noch Studenten, die in der Regel ausreichende Grundlagen zum Verständnis der theoretischen Ausführungen aufweisen, andererseits die Laien, die eine erlebte Anschauung aus den Höhlen mitbringen, doch häufJ.g nicht über alle wissenschaftlichen Grundlagen zum Verständnis der Phänomene verfügen. Deshalb mußten gelegentlich auch ein facheren Problemen größerer Raum gewährt und nomenklatorische Fragen mit einbezogen werden.

Nach Jahrzehnten der Verdrängung von Wasser aus dem Siedlungsraum ist dieses in den vergangenen Jahren verstärkt zum gestalterischen Thema geworden. Die Integration natürlicher Wasserläufe in die bebaute Umgebung, die Klimatisierung von Stadträumen durch Wasserskulpturen, aber auch die Schaffung von Ruhe- oder Erlebnisorten wie Brunnen und Bassins stoßen nicht nur bei Architekten und Stadtplanern auf Interesse, sondern werden auch in der Öffentlichkeit beachtet. Dieses Buch zeigt in thematischer Ordnung – von der großflächigen Landschaftsplanung über die Stadtraumgestaltung bis zum Kunstobjekt - die vielfältigen Möglichkeiten der kreativen Arbeit mit Wasser in der Stadt, Kunst, Landschaft und Architektur. Die dokumentierten Arbeiten umfassen u.a. die Freiraumgestaltung für den Dubai Business Park, eine Flussrenaturierung im Bishan Park in Singapur, die Freiraumplanung für eine neue Siedlung in Tianjin, China, die Planung des Telecom Park, Taipei sowie des Vuores Central Park in Tampere, Finnland, und die Stadtplatzgestaltung Civic Square Seattle. Herbert Dreiseitl, geboren 1955, ist Bildhauer, Wasserkünstler und Landschaftsarchitekt. Nach Bildhauerausbildung an der Hochschule für Gestaltung in Ulm und Architekturstudien gründete er 1980 Gründung das Atelier Dreiseitl in Überlingen/Bodensee. Zahlreiche Realisierungen im Bereich Stadthydrologie, Wassergestaltung, Freiraumplanung und Siedlungsentwässerung. Er hält weltweit Vorträge, und seine Arbeit wurde vielfach veröffentlicht. Dieter Grau, geboren 1963, Gärtner und Landschaftsarchitekt, arbeitet seit 1994 im Atelier Dreiseitl. Seit 1996 leitet er dort den Bereich Landschaftsarchitektur. Er ist weltweit mit Planungsprojekten beschäftigt und hält regelmäßig Fachvorträge.
