Driving cars, farming wind turbines, working in shared spaces, and living in high-rise apartments are all relatively new experiences for the human species, but they demonstrate that we are particularly good at adapting to a diverse range of landscapes. Environmental psychology, which may encompass ecopsychology and conservation psychology, explores the relationship between humans and the world and how physical spaces influence the way we feel, think, and interact within both natural and built landscapes. Researchers in the field investigate everything from stressful designs in urban spaces that may influence human performance or even criminal behavior, to the therapeutic effects of the outdoors on children and adults alike. Environmental psychologists often work with other professionals in the areas of environmental science, city planning, architecture and landscape design.
