The study of the ways in which organisms interact with their environment is called ecology. The word ecology was coined in 1869 by the German zoologist Ernst Haeckel, who derived it from the Greek oikos, which means “household.” Economics is derived from the same word. However, economics deals with human “housekeeping,” while ecology concerns the “housekeeping” of the natural world.
For many years, many people did not consider ecology to be an important or even a real science. By the late 20th century, however, ecology had emerged as one of the most popular and important areas of biology. The effect of the environment on the organisms that inhabit it and vice versa is now acknowledged as a key element in a wide range of issues, from population growth, climate change, environmental pollution, species extinction, and human health and medicine.
