Environmental History scholarly journal
The history of the human environment or environmental history is a subdiscipline of history, close to historical biogeography. In scientific circles we talk about ecology as retrospective. The environmental history studies the history of relations between human societies, nature and the biophysical environment. Specifically, these studies focus on ideas developed, to the knowledge of nature and understanding of interdependencies and interactions between human societies and habitat. This field theory emerges in the early 1970s in conjunction with the rise of environmental movements and the new concerns of the human environment.
