The interaction of nature and society

1. Explain why the bulk of the world’s population lives on the plains and along the shores of the seas and oceans.

On the plains, as well as along the shores of the seas and oceans, the most favorable natural conditions for the life and economic activities of people are created.

2. What climatic zones are most favorable for human life and activity?

The subtropical zone and the southern regions of the temperate belt are the most favorable for human life and activity.

3. Give examples of the impact of climate on the life of the population, the nature of buildings, on clothing in countries with different climatic conditions.

People adapt to... life in specific climatic conditions. The clothing of the Eskimo or Chukchi is different from the clothes of the resident of the island of Java, as are their dwellings and the nature of their activities. Living in a territory with favorable climatic conditions is much easier than in the harsh conditions of the North, where you need to spend more energy for hunting or fishing to get food. And with clothing in the tropics is much easier. People get used to living in their homeland. When resettled on the territory with other conditions, they feel incapable of living, try to return to their habitual natural environment.
