  • Chemical ecology studies focuses on the biochemistry of ecology and the specific molecules or groups of molecules termed semiochemicals that function as signals to initiate, modulate, or terminate a variety of biological processes such as metabolism. (wikipedia.org)
  • Well-conducted studies establishing the theories and practices of clinical ecology were not found in reviews of evidence supporting its practices by the American Medical Association in 1992, the American College of Physicians in 1989, the Canadian Psychiatric Association, the International Society of Regulatory Toxicology and Pharmacology in 1993, the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology, and more recently by the American College of Occupational and Environmental Medicine in 1999.

  • Due to the high level of horizontal gene transfer among microbial communities, microbial ecology is also of importance to studies of evolution. (wikipedia.org)
  • conservation
  • The movement does not subscribe to anthropocentric environmentalism (which is concerned with conservation of the environment only for exploitation by and for human purposes) since deep ecology is grounded in a quite different set of philosophical assumptions. (wikipedia.org)

  • Tropical ecology is the study of the relationships between the biotic and abiotic components of the tropics, or the area of the Earth that lies between the Tropic of Cancer and the Tropic of Capricorn (23.4378° N and 23.4378° S, respectively). (wikipedia.org)
  • scope
  • The scope of ecology contains a wide array of interacting levels of organization spanning micro-level (e.g., cells) to a planetary scale (e.g., biosphere) phenomena. (wikipedia.org)

  • As a 16-year-old high school student, Betsy Boze (Betsy Vogel), an environmental advocate and social activist that enjoyed sewing costumes and unique gifts, made a 3 x 5 foot green and white "theta" ecology flag to commemorate the first Earth Day. (wikipedia.org)
  • Microbial ecology (or environmental microbiology) is the ecology of microorganisms: their relationship with one another and with their environment. (wikipedia.org)
  • Sergei Winogradsky was one of the first researchers to attempt to understand microorganisms outside of the medical context-making him among the first students of microbial ecology and environmental microbiology-discovering chemosynthesis, and developing the Winogradsky column in the process. (wikipedia.org)
  • communities
  • We plan to continue our efforts in working these organizations and hope to encourage other local agencies to get involved in historical ecology projects in their local communities. (csun.edu)
  • community
  • Community ecology has its origin in European plant sociology. (wikipedia.org)
  • On a deeper level the meaning and value of the community concept in ecology is up for debate. (wikipedia.org)
  • The majority of fungal ecology research leveraging next-generation sequencing approaches involves sequencing of PCR amplicons of conserved regions of DNA (i.e. marker genes) to identify and describe the distribution of taxonomic groups in the fungal community in question, though more recent research has focused on sequencing functional gene amplicons (e.g. (wikipedia.org)

  • In 1965, Randolph founded the Society for Clinical Ecology as an organization to promote his theories based on the symptoms of his patients, known as multiple chemical sensitivities (MCS). (wikipedia.org)
  • Twentieth century critics of clinical ecology charged that multiple chemical sensitivity (MCS) had never been clearly defined, no scientifically plausible mechanism has been proposed for it, no diagnostic tests have been substantiated, and not a single case has been scientifically proven.
