  • Su Yongge

Abstract

Ecology, as conventionally defined, is a science that deals with interactions between living organisms and their physical environment. Human beings have now achieved such a dominant role that they are an unprecedented ecological factor controlling ecosystems on the planet. A more practical way to define ecology might be to say that it concerns human beings in relation to their living environment, a relationship which has developed into a serious crisis.
