Rural Sociology: The Basis for a New Social Ecology.
Belcher, John C.
Modern human ecologists, the scientific saviors of the day, are likely to repeat the mistakes of their predecessors, discredited decades ago, who borrowed the concepts and theories of the biological ecologists and attempted to apply them directly to urban life. If human ecology is to be re-established as a scientific discipline it needs to use as basic data the kinds of studies rural sociologists have been making since the founding of the discipline. Work by rural sociologists on such topics as settlement patterns, migratory labor, locality groups, and trade and service areas can all provide the data from which a modern social ecology can develop.
