    Human ecology is an interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary study of the relationship between humans and their natural, social, and built environments. The philosophy and study of human ecology has a diffuse history with advancements in ecology, geography, sociology, psychology, anthropology, zoology, epidemiology, public health, and home. AIM: The Journal of Human Ecology (J Hum Ecol) is designed for the prompt publications of original and significant articles in the field of human ecology, genetics, biology and culture that are related to environmental issues. It aims at disseminating knowledge which may help in understanding man-environment relationship.

    Activists and researchers have described human ecology as problematic. They point to the world food shortage, people's assault on their own health and on the health of the ecological system and the stripping of the earth's resources. Many view population growth, a high standard of living and technological errors as world crises. The Healthy Aging Laboratory is directed by Dr. Corinna E. Loeckenhoff and located in the College of Human Ecology, Department of Human Development, at Cornell University in Ithaca, New York. We are a growing research laboratory that hosts talented individuals from around the country and the globe. What unites us is our interest in the socioemotional and cognitive factors that influence health.
