<p><span style="font-size: large;">In ecology, <strong>bionomics</strong> (Greek: bio = life; nomos = law) is the comprehensive study of an organism and its relation to its environment. Today we call it, &quot;ecology&quot; or a more specific subdiscipline of Ecological Economics. An example of studies of this type is Richard B. Selander's Bionomics, Systematics and Phylogeny of Lytta, a Genus of Blister Beetles (Coleoptera, Meloidae), Illinois Biological Monographs: number 28, 1960. Michael Rothschild used the term in his book, but does not make reference to prior uses.</span></p>
