Vanishing and Endangered Species

Front Cover
Discovery Publishing House Pvt. Limited, 2004 - Endangered species - 320 pages
The Present title Vanishing and Endangered Species is written for both non science and science majors as an introduction to historical life science. Although it is likely that many students will have already taken an introductory life science, physical geology or earth science course, this background is not assumed. Accordingly, the book stands on its own and presents a comprehensive picture not only of earth s history but also of the geological forces that have shaped it. The book uses up-to-date examples to show how precise hypotheses may be formulated and tested experimentally. Special efforts have been made to explain ideas in non mathematical terms. The primary aim throughout has been clarity, simplicity and the high standard. The book will definitely prove to be a boon to teachers, students and research workers in the related field.

P.R. Yadav is a plagiarist. The entire text of this book is a word for word plagiarization of my Doomsday Book of Animals. All the illustrations are also copied directly from my book.
The only
exception is the scrambled introduction which is plagiarized from several other sources - including several paragraphs from the preface of my book by H.R.H. The Duke of Edinburgh!
Yadav's publishers - Discovery Publishing House, New Delhi - have agreed the work has been entirely plagiarized from the Doomsday Book of Animals and undertaken to destroy all copies.
P.R. Yadav is a lecturer in the Department of Zoology, D.A.V. College, Muzaffarnager, Allahabad and edits the Journal of Experimental Zoology India and Biochemical and Cellular Archives.
