Ecology is the scientific study of the distribution and abundance of life and the interactions between organisms and their natural environment. The environment of an organism includes physical properties, which can be described as the sum of local abiotic factors (such as sunlight, climate, and geology) and its biotic ecosystem, (which includes other organisms that share its habitat).
Introductory Ecology Video - Remote Sensing
We shot this short video about remote sensing to be presented as a way ecologists study animals. The entire video was shot while we were on assignment doing research at Barro Colorado Island Panama. This video was made for Pearson's Miller and Levine Biology Textbook. Overall we made 35 videos. I think you'll really like the final product too!
The word "ecology" is often used more loosely in such terms as social ecology and deep ecology and in common parlance as a synonym for the natural environment or environmentalism. Likewise "ecologic" or "ecological" is often taken in the sense of environmentally friendly.
