The spectrum of possible human social behaviors may be influenced by our genetic makeup, but that is very different from saying that genes are rigid determinants of behavior. The field of conservation biology involves ecologists that are researching, confronting, and searching for solutions to sustain the planet's ecosystems for future generations.

Such commons typically have ‘open access’; they can be used by anyone to any extent. Biodiversity at all three levels is vital to human welfare. The broader strokes of Steward's overall project and emphasis on evolutionary change, however, have directly and continually shaped cultural ecology in at least two major ways. (1) Part of Steward�s legacy, Orlove suggests, is the emphasis in cultural ecology on processes.
