Our word ecology is derived from oikos + logia (home + study of), and was coined in 1866 by German naturalist Ernst Haeckel.
“From ages 4-7, children’s homes fill the centre of their maps. [They] often describe the worms, chipmunks and pigeons on their blocks, and feel protective towards these creatures. As they grow older their geographical range expands rapidly.” Abstraction, aerial perspectives and social gathering points are inserted.
