Frank Egerton’s History of Ecological Sciences

Frank N. Egerton has been writing a history of the Ecological Sciences and has agreed to place installments of the history in ESA’s Bulletin. His first piece, A History of the Ecological Sciences: Early Greek Origins, appears in the January 2001 issue of the Bulletin in the Commentary section. Nearly every issue of the Bulletin since then has included one of his contributions. As he states in the first paragraph, the scope of the science of ecology is broad and “it may be the most important science for managing the earth as an abode for humanity and for what is left of our environment. Yet ecology is also one of the youngest sciences, and its history is not well known”.
