Description: This article discusses ecological sciences and environmental ethics. The ecological and evolutionary sciences provide a "mental image" that offers a spectrum of relationships between society and the natural world broader than that used by classical economics and ethics. Evolutionary sciences claim humans share a common origin with the other biological species. Ecological sciences recognize that human beings establish interactions with a multitude of biological species and ecosystem processes, and more recently emphasized that the welfare of human communities and biotic communities are complementary (Rozzi 2001, Millenium Ecosystem Assessment 2005).
