The Present Environment: A Geographic Summary
This chapter describes the present environment of Europe: topography, climate, and characteristic associations of plants, animals, and soils. It introduces the reader to the geography of the continent, develops the environmental background for the societies of the last 9,000 years, and provides a point of departure against which we can compare the environments of the more distant past.
