Sumbiography (from the Greek, sumbios living together)

I define sumbiography as the sum total of the seminal events and influences on a person’s life that constitute their outlook and values on the importance of life, nature, the environment and life-support systems. A sumbiocentric person is likely to have a sumbiography rich with experiences of  immersion in nature. A strongly anthropocentric person is likely to have suffered Nature Deficit Disorder (Richard Louv) as a child-young adult and hence would have little or no sumbiography within their biography.
