Discussion questions
What is an environment? What is nature ? how are they different?
o Enviro: more of the connection of humans through physical
and human geo
o Nature: seen as the “wilderness”
What are the geographies of environments and natures? In other
worlds, where can the environment and nature be found?
How have you come to know and understand what the environment
and nature is?
Defining ‘Nature’ and the environment: The Traditional View
Nature is the essence of something
o Ex. humans are selfish
Nature and ‘pristine’ environments are areas unaltered by human
action, i.e. the environment as a realm of external to humanity an
society
The physical world in its entirety, perhaps including humans, ie.
Nature as a universal realm (continue from notes)
Ecological view
Ecology treats nature as something objective that can be studied
o This is something that you can grab and study unlike the
traditional view
Ecological change is compared to a climax community, which
describes a final stage of change
o Succession
Things start as small annual plants and then over time,
they become perennials and eventually hardwoods (the
climax vegetation)
Humans can affect and change this through expanding
farm land or paving roads disturbance
This will also affect the animals that live here
Ecologist believe that this is how things should progress
unless the humans disturbed them
