Global worming changed the landscape: glacier tundra forest. Natural transformation of the environment, climate change: axial wobble of the earth (as the earth rotates, variation of tilt of the earth, variation of the travel path of the earth around of the sun orbit. Hazard it is natural eg) earthquake, tsunami. Humans are acting to accelerate, decelerate, and diverge natural flows of energy (sun light, heat) and mater (water, air, soil ) All resources is finite at some scale. All life form draws on resources, which will change the environment. Feedback: negative feedback maintain stability, do the opposite, positive feedback take it further extreme, do in the same thing, enhance change leeds to a die-off. Attribute of the model: population size in the area, density, distribution, resources. Human attributes demand, acquisition, use (these are what influences the environment) Abiotic environment non living environment (atmosphere/air, hydrosphere/water, pedosphere/soil, lithosphere/minerals, troposphere/shape of the earth)
