Environment, Ecology & Agriculture
Environment section for PT is an amalgamated section comprising Biology, Zoology, Botany, Geography and Economy. The section has been reframed from syllabus point of view because of close association between these subjects and the overlapping relationship between them. These sections have got many overlaps and preparing all of them simultaneously has its own advantages if the entire study of the syllabus is so synchronized.
Preparing this portion thoroughly gives you good score in PT. The section doesn’t end up helping your GS, it can immensely help the students in their Geography optional, the offshoots and applications of the knowledge gained by mastering this component are very rewarding for Geography optional. And not to talk about GS Mains, which will be covered more than half. Candidates can enhance their answering abilities on questions related to world biomes, distribution of flora and fauna, conservation measures, etc. asked in GS Paper I and III in their Mains Examination.
