What is an Environment?
An environment is the physical surroundings a plant, animal or human lives in.
The environment includes everything living and everything nonliving.
An environment is usually defined by a region, what that region’s non-living conditions are like and how plants, animals and humans have adapted to that region.
When looking at an Environment what are we looking at?
When looking at the environment that a plant, animal or human is in, it is about looking at the interactions and the adaptions between the living and non-living within a region; as well as looking at the history and future of the place and the influences that affect the non-living and living in the environment.
When looking at any plant, animal or human environment it is important to look at the conditions and influences that affect factors such as the growth, the overall health, and abilities of the living.
