Natural environments and cultures vary considerably across different regions and different eras. They interact with each other and have a profound influence on human activity. There are incredibly diverse natural environments in the world, and human activity produces similar diversity in the form of multi-tiered groups of culture. These different cultural activities, religious beliefs and even societal forms intermingle, spread and overlap in space. When different cultures collide, some integrate harmoniously, but others experience conflict and mutual rejection.
