A search for “human ecology” on the Google search engine produces an overwhelming 55 million results. A more traditional academic search, at the University of California, Berkeley library produces 903 references, which are scattered in various libraries ranging from Bioscience to Business and Economics and Environmental Design. Textbooks proposing to summarize this field include the early environmental-conservationist effort Human Ecology: Problems and Solutions (Ehrlich et al., 1973), and the recent Fundamentals of Human Ecology (Kormondy and Brown, 1998). The former focuses on “the biological and physical aspects of man’s present problems and on the ways that they can be solved,” (p. v) and the goal of the latter “is to present the fundamentals of ecology and their application to humans through an integrated approach to human ecology, blending biological ecology with social science approaches,” (p. xvii).
