Ecology around us
Ecology is the scientific study of the relationships that living organisms have with each other and with their abiotic environment. Ecosystems are composed of dynamically interacting parts including organisms, the communities they make up, and the non-living components of their environment.
Ecology is an interdisciplinary field that includes biology and Earth science. The word "ecology" was coined in 1866 by the German scientist Ernst Haeckel (1834–1919). Modern ecology transformed into a more rigorous science in the late 19th century. Evolutionary concepts on adaptation and natural selection became cornerstones of modern ecological theory. Ecology is not synonymous with environment, natural history, or environmental science. It is closely related to evolutionary biology, genetics, and ethology.
Ecology is a human science as well. There are many practical applications of ecology in conservation biology, wetland management, natural resource management city planning, community health, economics, basic and applied science, and human social interaction (human ecology). Ecosystems maintain biophysical feedback mechanisms that modulate metabolic rates and evolutionary dynamics between living and non-living components of the planet.
As for me I think that ecology is our future forget of all.
