Ecology  - Ecological concepts are not new; the term "ecology" was coined in 1869.  Derived from the Greek "oikos." or home, ecology literally means the study of organisms in their homes.  Today we usually define ecology as the study of the relationships between organisms and their environment-or environmental biology.  (For more see Understanding the game of the Environment)
