Abstract

Anthropological discussions of the relationships between environment and culture (cultural ecology) revolve around the formulation of concepts through which it is possible to reach a better understanding of these relationships. In this paper the author demonstrates his theoretical concept of an eco-cultural set of interactions through an analysis of some aspects of the Shiḥūḥ culture. Basing his observations on recent field-work in Oman he outlines the main processes of the eco-cultural pattern: adjustment and adaptation.
