Ecosystem ecology is a relatively young discipline. Golley and Coleman provide excellent reviews of the history of ecosystem science and firsthand accounts of the field’s development. Elements of the foundations of the science go back centuries, but they began to . David Montgomery is a geomorphologist who looks at the process shaping Earth’s surface and how they affect ecological systems—and human societies. He has studied everything from the ways that landslides and glaciers influence the height of mountain ranges, to the way that soils have shaped human civilizations both now and in the past. The 12th International Behavioral Ecology Congress held at Cornell University, Aug. The congress features a wide variety of human and animal behavior talks and poster sessions, including plenary sessions on sexual selection and mating systems; the behavioral ecology of fertility decline in humans; kinship, cooperation and population structure in social birds; spider sociality; and the. Dr. Ramenzoni is an environmental anthropologist specialized in human behavioral ecology, coastal communities, and marine and coastal policies. Through a mixed methods approach, she studies how socio-ecological factors shape human adaptation, the impact of environmental uncertainty on decisions about resource use, and household nutrition in.

Studies in Human Ecology and Adaptation, a book series launched by Springer Academic inpublishes cutting-edge work on the bio-social processes of adaptation and human-environmental dynamics. Human ecology, a broad perspective, views the biological, environmental, demographic, and technological aspects of human existence as interrelated and spans a large number of disciplines.

Human ecology is the study of the relationship between humans and their natural and built environments. Human values, resource use and lifestyles affect the physical environment.

Executive Summary. Disaster signifies extreme impacts suffered when hazardous physical events interact with vulnerable social conditions to severely alter the normal functioning of a community or a society (high confidence).

Social vulnerability and exposure are key determinants of disaster risk and help explain why non-extreme physical events and chronic hazards can also lead to extreme.

Wescoat Jr., in International Encyclopedia of the Social & Behavioral Sciences (Second Edition), Abstract. Gilbert F. White (–) is variously known as the “father of natural hazards research,” “father of floodplain management,” and all-around leader of the environment-society branch of geography in the United State during the twentieth century (Wescoat, ).

The term human ecology, which encompasses this field, came into vogue in the second and third decades of the 20th century, followed in declining order of frequency of use by the term social ecology and then, in the s and s, cultural ecology, and then ecological anthropology.
