Advances in Human Ecology


This is the fifth 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, interdepent 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.
The evolution of social exploitation, Richard Machalek; Darwin's anthropomorphism - an argument for animal-human continuity, Eileen Crist; internal selection and cultural evolution, Bernd Baldus; ecological theory and the evolution of complex human communities, William S. Abruzzi; interaction as a concept basic to human ecology - an exploration and synthesis, Gerald L. Young; explorations of culture and nature - ecological feminism and the enrichment of human ecology, Kari Marie Norgaard; sustainable development as a sociologically defensible concept - from foxes and rovers to citizen workers, Adam S. Weinberg, David Pellow and Allan Schnaiberg; an ecological investigation of interstate migration in the United States, 1985 - 1990, Dudley L. Poston, Jr and Michael Xinxiang Mao.
