32.A Glossary of Ecological Terms

“The glossary that follows assumes a definition of ecology--the study of interactions between organisms and their environment--much wider than what fits under the field's habitual statistical persona. Ecofeminism and ecopsychology are mentioned, for example, as are terms from organic gardening and permaculture.”
