Abstract

The usefulness of combining behavior analysis and behavioral ecology principles is considered in regard to gerontological research and application. For the behavior analyst, the basic unit of understanding is the person’s behavior in its functional context. Issues related to extending this level of analysis are discussed from a behavioral ecological perspective.
