Paper Abstract

I would like to open my presentation by referring to the main task that the mankind is facing today. This task involves not only survival of the present generation but providing for the next generations to come. Our generation and generations after us should realize that the environment could be our best friend only if we have enough strength to admit that we don't know much about the world around us and the environment we're living in. An alliance between the mankind and the environment could be accomplished only through mutual respect, understanding and knowledge about each other. I believe we will be able to understand nature and nature will reciprocate. Presently, ecology and environmental science are just beginning to be outlined. Environmental science is currently trying to determine its place among other science branches. Scientists all over the world are using the experience gained by other advanced science disciplines to attempt to apply such knowledge to such a difficult subject matter as nature and the environment around us
