The word Ecology comes from the Greek word ‘oikos’, meaning home, and ‘ology’ denoting a science. Literally, the science of home. However, we can be a little more precise than that, and define it as ‘the scientific study of the relationships of organisms, communities, the places in which they live, and how they interact.’ This course provides an introduction to the principles and disciplines involved leading on to the concept of ‘green’ policies, and pointing the way forward with opportunities for positive involvement.
