Abstract/Description: The objective of this column is to offer public health ecology as a method to conceptualize the deleterious connections between land conservation and human health. A vital part of our efforts in sustainability and creating ecologically sensitive and health-supporting environments is the conservation and rehabilitation of the green infrastructure that delivers not only basic environmental needs essential to sustaining life but also the behaviors that ameliorate chronic disease. Public health ecology adopts the interrelationship between humans and their environment, and the quality of this relationship is measured in the health of the persons who are dependent on its form and structure.
