The first-and only-source to integrate the multiple disciplines and professions exploring the many ways people interact with the natural and designed environments in which we live. Individuals, families and communities are constantly interacting with their work, social, and personal environments. What is the impact of these interactions on our health, quality of life, and environment? How can we build a healthy future for our children through an understanding of the ecology of human life? Comprised of more than 600 informative entries, The Encyclopedia of Human Ecology examines the interdisciplinary and complex topic of human ecology. Knowledge gathered from disciplines that study individuals and groups, such as biology, nutrition, psychology, and sociology, is blended with information about environments from the fields of family science, geography, anthropology, urban planning, and environmental science.

At the same time, professions intended to enhance individual and family life-marriage and family therapy, clinical psychology, social work, dietetic and other health professions-are represented alongside those concerned with preservation, conservation design and the management of the environment and its resources. How rampant are eating disorders among our youth? Are AIDS educational programs effective? What problems do adolescents transitioning into adulthood encounter? Here, four leading scholars in the field have assembled a team of top-tier psychologists, sociologists, anthropologists, and other experts to explore these and hundreds of other timely issues.
