The concept of the term "ecology' as it relates to sociology and social research is well interpreeted in Gist and Halbert's book, Urban Society… From the above explanation and from the interpretations of the term "ecology" in the writings of Park and Eurgess and others, we get the idea that an ecological study involves the spatial, selective and distributive functions and melations of human beings in a given geographical and cultural area, and that these functions and relations characterize the forms and types of social interaction.
