Advances in Human Ecology


This is the fourth volume in a series designed to publish theoretical, empirical and review papers on scientific human ecology. Human ecology is interpreted to include structural and functional changes in human social organization and sociocultural systems as these changes may be affected by, interdepend with, or identical to changes in ecosystemic, evolutionary or ethological processes factors or mechanisms. Three degrees of scope are included in this interpretation: the adaptation of sociocultural forces to bioecological forces; the interactions, two-way adaptations, between sociocultural and bioecological forces; and the integration, or unified interactions, of sociocultural with bioecological forces.
From Eukaryotic cells to Gaia - the range of symbosis and its relevance to human ecology, William R. Catton, Jr; basic dimensions and forms of social exploitation - a comparative analysis, Richard Machalek; are the dilemmas posed by public goods and common pool resources the same?, Yeongi Son and Jane Sell; common and private concerns, Bonnie J. McCay; from commons to traps - natural balance and human ecological series, Lee Freese; intergenerational commons, economism, globalization, and unsustainable development, Richard B. Norgaard; recycling - conserving resouces or accelerating the treadmill of production?, Adam Weinberg, Allan Schnaiberg and Kenneth A. Gould.
