Ecology is the interdisciplinary fi eld that includes biology and Earth science. The word ecology was invented by German scientist Ernst Haenkel, although ancient Greek philosophers such as Hippocrates and Aristotle were to lay the foundations of ecology in their studies on natural history. The term ecology is not synonymous with concepts such as environment, environmentalism, natural history or environmental science although it is closely related to evolutionary biology, genetics, and ethology.
