Describe the types of Ecology?
Scientists have classified ecology into:
Firstly, Autecology, which involves the study of one species of organism.
Secondly, Synecology, which is the study of communities or entire ecosystems.
Thirdly, Habitat ecology, which is the ecological study of various habitats on earth and their effects on the organisms living there.
Then, Community ecology, which is the study of the local distribution of animals in different habitats, the recognition and composition of community units, and succession.
After that, Applied ecology, which is the application of ecological concepts to human needs and requirements like forest conservation, animal husbandry, agriculture, wildlife management, etc.
Lastly, Systems ecology, which is a relatively modern branch of ecology, deals with the analysis and understanding of the function and structure of ecosystems.
