The AP Class 10 Biology chapter 10 Natural Resources, discusses the human interventions affecting natural resources and the efforts that are being made to sustain and save them. There is a dire need to manage resources more than ever, as it is essential for their conservation and restoration.
How to Conserve?
- Resources are most often local specific and people need to have control over them.
- People should be encouraged to reduce pressure on the environment by reducing the utilisation of resources and should be encouraged to reuse them if possible.
- We must use exhaustible fuels such as fossil fuels, coal and petroleum judiciously.
- Interstate and intercountry disputes should not hamper the availability of a resource.
In the next section, let us answer a few chapter questions to better understand the concepts discussed in the chapter.

- Prepare a model for rainwater harvesting or energy saving are soil management. That reflects your innovative thoughts.
- Does your village or nearest city have a mechanism in place for recycling these waste materials? Find out how it is done and write in detail.
- Proper utilisation of natural resources is the way to show gratitude to our nation. Can you support this statement? Give your argument.
- Crop selection and cultivation should be based on the availability of water. Prepare a slogan to make aware of farmers about this?
- Proper utilisation of natural resources is the way to show gratitude to our nation. Can you support
