children & nature

Patty and Oliver continued their work on videophilia and its implications in a review paper/think piece published June 2007, which may be downloaded here. The study was also funded by The Nature Conservancy through Peter Kareiva. In this paper Patty and Oliver attempted to synthesize the implications of videophilia to child development, and to children's later environmental consciousness. This second videophilia paper was published simultaneously with a response to the paper by cultural anthropologist Ellen Dissanayake, which is included in the download above.
