The articles in this collection examine the issues arising from the use and abuse of the term "ecology" in environmental education to encourage ecologists to become more engaged with education at all levels. Although great efforts have been made to improve understanding of the environment via programs offered by educational establishments, government agencies and others, it is sometimes perceived that environmental "education" actually entails the "advocacy" of particular values and beliefs.
There is a need to clarify the distinction between the role of ecological science and that of social and political values for environmental education. This collection addresses this need by examining the changing perspectives of ecology in education and of education in environmental science.
