Human Ecology

How Nature and Culture Shape Our World

Island Press
Human Ecology brings together for the first time scholarship from the social and natural sciences as well as the environmental design arts to offer an overview of the field of human ecology and to show how the field may help us to envision our futures. While the approach is largely theoretical, it has broad policy and practical implications, and represents an important new work for anyone concerned with interactions between humans and the environment.
RELATED TOPICS: Architecture, Nature
Frederick Steiner is dean of the School of Architecture at the University of Texas at Austin. His books include The Living Landscape, 2nd Edition and, with Ian McHarg, To Heal The Earth.
