Humans' relationship to specific places and to the non-human world has long been a central concern for anthropologists. It is also a crucial component of cultural geography and increasingly of the planning profession as well. In an era when our effect on the earth has reached the level of a geological force, anthropological thinking about "nature," sense of place, mobility, non-human species and relationships, adaptation, and climate is being reinvigorated in ways that can contribute enormously to contemporary consideration of the problems and opportunities we now face as a species.
