"Science as a Way of Knowing" is a project of the education committee of the American Society of Zoologists and 11 other organizations designed to offer suggestions for making the teaching of biology at the college and university level more effective. Each year the project focuses on an important subfield of biology and: (1) sponsors a symposium on the topic area; (2) develops a film program; (3) publishes an essay with an extensive bibliography; and (4) publishes the symposium proceedings. The proceedings of the 1985 symposium on human ecology are presented in this document. Articles included are: "Science as a Way of Knowing--Human Ecology: Opening Remarks" and "Science as a Way of Knowing--Human Ecology" (John A. Moore); "Human Ecology for Introductory Biology Courses: An Overview" (Paul R. Ehrlich); "The Human Population: Size and Dynamics" (Anne H. Ehrlich); "Science as a Way of Knowing: Man and Food" (John L. Fischer); "On the Trail of Atmospheric Mutagens and Carcinogens: A Combined Chemical/Microbiological Approach" (James N. Pitts, Jr.); "Trends in Health-Ecological Consequences for the Human Population" (Lester Breslow); "Ecological Aspects of Disease and Human Populations" (Robert M. May); "Man and the Sea-The Ecological Challenge" (G. Carleton Ray); "Human Ecology: The Subversive, Conservative Science" (Garrett Hardin); and "Films and Videotapes in Human Ecology" (Gary Anderson and Nathan H. Hart). (JN)
