In coming near near rus, the usual and social sciences first turned really good, elevated, and compartmentalized in a plurality of first-order disciplines; later, they all started a strategy of integration into Agroecology as a second-order, multi-perspective and shared examine platform. this day, Agroecology is a transdiscipline that integrates different fields of data into the idea that of agroecosystems seen as socio-ecological systems.
However, the legislations turns out to nonetheless be caught within the first degree. Following a reductionist technique, legislation has deconstructed and shattered the universe of rus into numerous, disjointed felony uncomplicated debris, multiplying the planes of study and, particularly, retaining Agricultural legislation and Environmental legislations separate fields.
