Abstract

The human-environment relationship is symbiotic in that the environment influences our behaviors and we in turn influence the environment,. Whether fue to fear, neccessity, or naturally occurring challenges such as droughts, floods and extreme temperatures, we have adapted to a variety of environmental conditions that then lead to changes within the environment. Early humans examined weather patterns, interpreted animal behaviors, and identified fertile soils, among various other efforts in order to increase their understanding of the natural world. Many of these efforts were among the first of our environmental studies. The results of these early studies prompted human responses, such as stockpiling food and water, seeking shelter and high ground, and planting and harvesting crops.
