Ecology  is the interdisciplinary scientific study of the interactions between organisms and the interactions of these organisms with their environment. Ecology is the study of ecosystems. As such, it is concerned with the web or network of relations among organisms at different scales of organization ranging from tiny organisms to the entire biosphere. Ecology is a well established natural science and is not synonymous with environment, environmentalism, or environmental science.

Like many of the natural sciences, a conceptual understanding of ecology is found in the broader details of study, including:

  • life processes explaining adaptations
  • distribution and abundance of organisms
  • the movement of materials and energy through living communities
  • the successional development of ecosystems, and
  • the abundance and distribution of biodiversity in context of the environment.

Ecology is distinguished from natural history, which deals primarily with the descriptive study of organisms. It is also distinct from traditional biology, which deals primarily with understanding single organisms and the general properties of life.

There are many practical applications of ecology in conservation biology, wetland management, natural resource management (agriculture, forestry , fisheries), city planning (urban ecology), community health, economics, basic & applied science and it provides a conceptual framework for understanding and researching human social interaction (human ecology).
