The Study of Ecology: Why Is It So Essential?

What is the study of ecology and why is it so important? The study of ecology is basically studies that are being done on the earth’s environmental systems. It is the study of the natural order of things and how natural events affect society. It is also the study of how man-made products affect the world and the environmental system. These studies show how society has began to use up and tear down the natural resources found in the world. They show how something as simple as an aerosol can of deodorant or hair spray can affect the air we breathe.

The study of ecology has given scientists a glimpse of the future. They can compare the natural resources of today to the way they were years ago and predict what the future generations will face. This has helped to make society aware of the damages the current lifestyle has on the earth and its natural resources. Using these studies will allow future as well current changes to occur which will improve and change our outlook.

The study of ecology is divided into four extremely broad categories and they are:

1. Population
2. Physiological
3. Ecosystems
4. Community

Each of the categories has a specific impact on the earth and the atmosphere surrounding the world. The studies being made have helped society to better understand and appreciate nature and the ecosystem that is vital to the survival of humanity. As society continues to alter the global environment the study of ecology can help to show what these changes are and the effects they will have on the earth in the years to come. This way, it is possible to intervene and prevent society from destroying itself out of ignorance.

Ecology can help scientists find ways to improve or increase the food source. The knowledge obtained from these studies is used to help increase the understanding of agriculture, fisheries, forestry and society in general. Studying ecology is a way to learn how everything in the world fits together and influences each other in a positive or negative way.

The study of ecology is essential to ensure that future generations have the natural resources needed to continue life as it is now known. It is slowly eliminating the ignorance that society has hid behind for decades. Eyes are being opened and the public is becoming aware of the need to preserve these natural resources as much as possible. It is the only way to ensure the future of earth and its inhabitants.
