Geographers working within political-cultural ecology and biogeography have often used a framework, or the general concept, of adaptation. The use of this blanket term, however, was and remains especially problematic for cultural-political ecology research, which tends to focus on a different scale of time–space analysis, while placing greater emphasis on the fine and coarse influences of political economy. To refine our understanding of daily activities that may lead towards adaptation, the concepts of ‘tactics’ and ‘strategy’ can bridge shorter-term phenomena that do not require the leap of scale implied by the loose use and implementation of the term adaptation.
