The over-exploitation of vital earth assets comparable to land and water has resulted in a few environment-related difficulties internationally. even as, land-use swap brought on by numerous human actions has ended in extinction of many plant and animal habitats and species. during this context, the relevance of biodiversity for human survival is changing into an important foreign political factor as medical proof builds at the worldwide wellbeing and fitness implications of biodiversity loss. those concerns are heavily associated with the difficulty of weather swap, as the various well-being hazards because of weather swap are linked to quick degradation of biodiversity. This current paintings makes a speciality of holistic typical resource-based spatio-temporal making plans, improvement, and administration and considers them as necessary to shop the degraded environment for sustainable source administration. Contributions are compiled in volumes: 1. weather swap and Biodiversity and a pair of. panorama Ecology and Water administration. Geoinformatics besides its instruments equivalent to distant sensing and geographical info platforms (GIS) were utilized in assessing the result of quite a few environmental difficulties either actual and social. the amount may be priceless for geographers, geoscientists, hydrologists, panorama ecologists, environmentalists, engineers, planners and coverage makers.

4 Annual rainfall trend by Linear Regression method from 1871 to 2011 illustrates the greater frequency of decreasing rainfall pattern after 1961 particularly in the North-east, Central North-east and West Central India. However, the increasing rainfall pattern was found in Peninsular India. The entire rainfall pattern of India indicates significant variability in different regions with some prominent changes in the trend. The overall rainfall trend shows 56 S. Kundu et al. significant decrease in the monsoon months which poses considerable threat to the agricultural economy and will aggravate the demand of water in near future.

Rainfall distribution and variability is also related to the temperature pattern which was found to be quite varied in Italy (Brunetti et al. 2000), Western and Central Europe (Moberg and Jones 2005), South Africa (Kruger 2006), Iran (Masih et al. 2010) etc. All these changes in rainfall trend have initiated more research in this field to analyze the distribution. Both parametric and non-parametric tests were used for the trend analysis, but non-parametric tests were considered as better as they can be used on independent data sets (Hamed and Rao 1998).
