"The science of ecology cannot be advanced without improving our
            understanding of human-environment interactions."

The Human Ecology Section of the Ecological Society of America  is a forum for presenting, discussing and applying the ideas, methods and results of human ecology and other disciplines that examine human-environment interactions towards the advancement of ecological science and education.  We host an online discussion group and sponsor regular symposia, meetings and other activities at ESA meetings.
