Research perspectives and the anomalous status of modern ecology

Biology and Philosophy 4 (4):433-455 (1989)
Ecology has often been characterized as an immature scientific discipline. This paper explores some of the sources of this alleged immaturity. I argue that the perception of immaturity results primarily from the fact that historically ecologists have based their work upon two very different approaches to research.
