Summary
Humans have always been influenced by natural landscapes, and always will be--even as we create ever-larger cities and our developments fundamentally change the nature of the earth around us. In this publication, noted city planner and landscape architect Frederick Steiner encourages us to consider how human cultures have been shaped by natural forces, and how we might use this understanding to contribute to a future where both nature and people thrive. Human ecology is the study of the interrelationships between humans and their environment, drawing on diverse fields from biology and geography to sociology, engineering, and architecture. Steiner admirably synthesizes these perspectives through the lens of landscape architecture, a discipline that requires its practitioners to consciously connect humans and their environments. After laying out eight principles for understanding human ecology, the book's chapters build from the smallest scale of connection--our homes--and expand to community scales, regions, nations, and, ultimately, examine global relationships between people and nature
