Integrating ecology and economics is increasingly important as humanity' s impact on the natural world increase. Ecological economics addresses the relationship between ecosystem and economic systems in the broadest sense. These problems are the focus of many of our most pressing current problems (i.e. sustainability, acid rain, global warming, wealth distribution). This paper presents a condensed review of ecological economics. This collection is seen as a hopeful first step toward a true synthesis of ecology and economics that could lead to a sustainable future.
In this paper, three major topics are addressed. Firstly,the paper discussed the relationship between economic growth and environmental conservation, and a simple but expedient classification of environment and economic issues. Secondly, the relationship of domains of ecological economics and conventional economics and ecology, resource and environmental economics, and environmental impact analysis are described. The progress in research on ecological economics at home and abroad are summarized in detail.Thirdly, two sets of ways to deal with ecological economics problems, quantitative measuring sustainable development and ecological economics modeling, are described and evaluated.

Key words:  Ecological economics      Advance in ecological economics research      Ecological economics modeling      Measuring sustainable development.
