I introduce the concept of "Ecologue" to this forum, as an idea akin to both "Epilogue", "Proluge", "Monologue" et cetera, combined with the "human impact" theory of environmentalism, often expressed in terms of a personal "carbon footprint."
What is the ecologue, it is the account that each human individual impacts upon the earth's soils and atmosphere. In short, you are responsible for the materials that you take out of the planet, and you are responsible for putting something back into the planet, in the form of a net increase of carbon, nitrogen, and phosphorous (primarily) into the land.
The Urantia Book II tells of the "ecolog" of the life on the face of Urantia, as David Attenborough would say "a storybook of life", the true history of living creatures, and we as one generation who can add one layer of stratification.
How is the ecologue measured? it is measured by contributions to bring back the life in the soils, and plants which produce value in the home garden. Plants are valued in the ecologue simply for the increased mass that they bring to the land, by sequestering atmospheric carbon and nitrogen and returning them to the soil life. Humans as the apex predator must recognise their chief responsibility in building "the portfolio of the ecologue", in other words, an array of fungus, yeast, and plants as "potential recruits" in the maximization of overall soil fertility and composition (the naturally occuring chemical balance).
You know "carbon footprint" how much carbon a person burned into the atmosphere on account of his electricity consumption, net refuse, et cetera. But ecolog is the measure of how much mass is "put back" into the land regeneratively.
You can consider that many of consumer's overall habits concerning single use packaging, and petrol consumption is counted as a net decrease of "held reserves" in the land and a net contribution to atmospheric carbon. This is one reason why the transportation distance "from farm to table" should be minimized as the human population increases. It is better to use the resources at hand, but in lieu of the CITES database, there is some consideration for replenishment of plant populations which are considered endangered. You cannot even find a photo of the mature plant on the internet for some of them.
So the ecologue is not just measured in the net increase of the soils on your land, or the land you have been given to use, but it is also measured in the number and kinds of creatures that a person keeps on their farms, and the way that plant populations, especially rare plants who are endangered, should increase. The ecologue for one individual is how much contribution to the overal horticulture of Urantia, along with the soil gains, but for society the ecologue is the overall strategy to "take back" land that has been overcome with such invasive species as "blue green algae", "zebra mussels", "the tumbleweed", and "japanese knotweed", which basically every environmentalist feels threatens native wildlife.
But the environmentalists have not been successful at creating the proper strategy for the rebuilding of the ecologue, the ecolog, because they have not taken their own actions and experiences into proper account. For this reason, I am creating my own ecolog, as in the American Colloquy of Edible Forest Gardens, which could be a compatible system for adaptive ecologue strategies in every climate and ecosystem. I am anticipating a "shift of climates" where native species should be "transplanted into the new prospective climate" which will be suited for vulnerable species after/now that the climate changes have occured.
Eventually my ecolog will be entered into the database of known varieties of all plants species, and the measurable contributions that one has made to one's own garden, one's own land, so that a new form of competition can develop, and a free system to report the gains of the land in a succinct fashion, even where new subspecies would be documented. This is the great competition to have the most arable soils, the greatest number of plants "living in one ark", as in the story of Noah. I just wanted to explain the concept before I developed it. Sorry I know I am pretentious.

First, ecologue is not a word and therefore has NO meaning.
Why just make stuff up? Pretentiousness as claimed by you.
