Ecology and Environment

Ecology and Environment :

“Ecology” is the study of living things in relationship to their environment.

The word can also be used to describe the totality of such relationships; but it should not be substituted for “environment” in statements like “improperly discarded lead batteries harm the ecology.”

It’s not the relationships that are being harmed, but nature itself: the batteries are harming the environment.
