About this product
- DescriptionToday, human ecology has split into many different sub-disciplines, such as historical ecology, political ecology or the New Ecological Anthropology. This collection of essays aims to prove that an interdisciplinary collaboration and understanding of the extreme complexity of the human-environment interface(s) is possible.
