MAN-ENVIRONMENT RELATIONSHIP

This volume brings together the contribution of certain internationally known scholars to human ecology. Each of these scholars has made a significant and lasting contribution to the understanding of the relationship between human beings and environment, and their work have implications for theoretical as well as applied interests. Looking at the range of the contributions in this volume, we may submit that the field of human ecology is truly multi-disciplinary, and that is the way in which human ecology has to be approached. The volume has twenty two papers that are classified into the following seven units.

  1. Perspectives on Human Ecology,
  2. Ecology and Health,
  3. Ecology and Human Growth,
  4. Ecology and Resources,
  5. Ecology and Biological Dimensions,
  6. Ecology, Archaeological Finds and History,
