“In effect, historical ecology encompasses the view that wherever humans have trodden, the natural environment is somehow different, sometimes in barely perceptible ways, sometimes in dramatic ways.” -from Time and Complexity in Historical Ecology: Studies of the Neotropical Lowlands by William Balee and Clark Erickson

Historical Ecology • Research that understands the modern environment from the context of the history of that ecosystem • Not just a quick snapshot of the environment, knowledge of how environments and landscapes evolved through time • Perspective that the environment as a product of a long history and relationship between humans and the natural environment • all environments inhabited by human societies in the past are “anthropogenic” (that is, modified or engineered by human activities)
