This book looks at human ecology by examining the linkages between human actions and environmental inputs. A historical context traces demographic and cultural developments through a series of demographic landmarks, and provides a balance to the book's survey of recent and contemporary populations. Chapter topics include ecological concepts; demographic landmarks of a successful species; technology, development and population; and health, disease, and diet. For active participants in the world we live in, who understand that our survival of environmental and social changes depends upon a clearer understanding of populations, society, and their adaptations.
