Biology 109 Prof. J. T. Lehman Ecological Knowledge and Environmental Problem Solving Types of Ecological Knowledge Ecological knowledge can be organized into a variety of categories. The following lists provide an outline of the forms that the knowledge can take. Most of these entries are properly regarded as theories that have been tested to various degrees of detail, and which are still being developed and refined. The purpose of the lectures identified with this subject matter is to provide an overview of the types of knowledge and theory that exist, and to explain the meaning of terms that are perhaps unfamiliar. It is not the purpose of the lectures to provide a mini-course on ecology.
