Fuller's definition of ecology is:
"the world-around complex intercomplementation of all the biological regenerative intercyclings with nature's geological and meteorological transformation recyclings".
(Critical Path, p.143)
This subject may be pursued in the following directions:
Ecology in general is very ably discussed by Ehrlich (1986) and Wilson (1994). See also other references on the Biology page.
What can be termed micro-ecology, where the ecosystem is the human organism, is discussed by Rosebury (1969).
For links between ecology and systems theory, see Bateson (1973), Waddington (1977) and Golley (1998).
