Natural Environment

The natural environment includes all naturally occurring living and non-living things, meaning in this case not artificial. The concept is applied most frequently to the Planet or certain parts of the World. This environment includes all living species, climate , weather and natural resources affecting human survival and economic activity. In contrast to the natural environment is the built environment. In such areas where humans have fundamentally transformed landscapes such as urban settings and agricultural land conversion, the natural environment is greatly modified into a simplified human environment. Even acts which seem less extreme, such as building a mud hut or a photovoltaic system in the desert, the modified environment becomes an artificial one.
