Continuity and Change in Cultural Adaptation to Mountain Environments

By: Ludomir R Lozny (Editor)

From £96.99

Within the environmental sciences, the field of human ecology is the study of the ways in which human social behavior is affected by environmental factors and events, including but not limited to natural resources, anthropogenic environmental changes and the interactions of competing or co-operating human groups. It encompasses a broad perspective that views the biological, environmental, demographic, and technological aspects of human existence as interrelated. Because the approach is multidisciplinary, it brings new and often unexpected insights to many topical issues.

This series also reflects a growing trend in the social sciences towards interdisciplinary study and research spanning a large number of disciplines, such as archaeology, anthropology, environmental sociology, geography and demography, and sharing a focus on the adaptation of humans to their environment throughout the world.
