  Ecologist
Ecologists examine the relationship between the environment and actions that affect it, including rainfall, pollution, temperature shifts, and industrialization.
Ecologists work with scientific and mathematical models to analyze and interpret correlations between actions and effects on the environment, which translates into significant time looking at data.
Ecologists, because of their exposure to the growing mountain of numbers which indicate that we are ravaging our own planet, often become environmentalists, using their scientific and statistics-based background as a resource for their educational and lobbying efforts.

It was in 1935 that Arthur Tansley, the british ecologist, coined the term ecosystem, the interactive system established between the biocenose (the group of living creatures), and their biotope, the environment in which they live.
For modern ecologists, ecology can be studied at several levels: population level (individuals of the same species), biocenose level (or community of species), ecosystem level, and biosphere level.
The Earth, from an ecological point of view, consists of several compartments, the hydrosphere (or sphere of water), the lithosphere (or sphere of soils and rocks) and the atmosphere (or sphere of the air).

Ecologists study the relationships among and between organisms and their environments, and the effects external influences such as population size and pollutants may have on these relationships.
Ecologists, depending on their area of expertise, use specialist equipment such as traps for catching animals, and instruments for measuring conditions.
Ecologists are employed by the Department of Conservation, the Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry, regional and district councils, as well as an increasing number by private organisations, to perform environmental impact statements.

   HOW DO YOU BECOME AN ECOLOGIST?   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
Based on the origin of the word "ecology," a strict definition of "ecologist" is someone who studies the household, which we now interpret as studying the relationship between organisms and their environments.
Today, a person does not necessarily have to conduct research to be an ecologist; he or she might be a teacher or a communicator of other sorts.
Today's ecologists include college teachers, research scientists, conservation ecologists in environmental organizations such as the Nature Conservancy and Conservation International, museum staff involved in environmental programs, government environmental biologists such as those in the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and state wildlife departments, and students involved in environmental research.

 IS AN ECOLOGIST AN ENVIRONMENTALIST?
The distinct approaches of ecologists and environmentalists are noted, along with some of the realistic issues that could expect to be faced by those working in these fields.
A qualified ecologist is regarded as a scientist, and as a scientist, an ecologist should possess a body of knowledge, skills and understanding.
The environmental expert (an ecologist, in this case) is qualified to study the environment scientifically, whereas the focus of an environmentalist is to assist / improve some aspect of the environment, to solve an environmental problem, frequently with an action-orientation (and unfortunately, in some cases, without the necessary ecological expertise).

Prince Philip's World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) and Goldsmith's The Ecologist magazine work hand-in-glove with some of the leading eco-terrorist groups, establishing a seamless link between the upper echelons of the British and continental European oligarchies, and the street hooligans who constitute the “squadristi” of the new terror.
He is one of the leaders of Reclaim the Streets, the British anarchist “Black Bloc” group that staged one of the very first street riots, ostensibly protesting globalization, in the City of London on June 18, 1999.
Their indignation at the excesses of apartheid was hijacked by the trans-nationals such as Anglo-American corporation and used to install a regime more compliant to their wishes.
