Study in political ecology incorporates political, economic, cultural, and social systems into the study of the environment and ecological change. Much work in this field focuses on the complex interdependences and interrelationships between human and environmental systems.

The discipline of political ecology emerged from political economy, peasant studies, postcolonial studies, and cultural ecology.
