Environmental History is the study of human interaction with the natural world. The principal goal of environmental history is to deepen our understanding of how humans have been affected by the natural environment and also how they have affected that environment and with what results.
Environmental historians base their understanding of human and nature relations primarily on historical methodology, but often borrow from the work of scientists and scholars in fields outside of history. As a result, many scholarly contributions pertinent to environmental history are written by scholars who may not even identify themselves as historians.
