Describe the different between natural and artificial environment with appropriate examples.
The natural environment encompasses all living and non-living things occurring naturally on earth or some region thereof. It is an environment that encompasses the interaction of all living species along with biotic and abiotic components. A pond is an example of natural environment as its environment consists of abiotic components such as light, temperature and water, while the biotic components are microscopic plankton, some higher plants, animals like fish and decomposers.
Artificial environment is formed as a result of human modification in the natural environment. Cultivated fields or cities are the examples of artificial environment In artificial environment, the natural environment is altered according to the need of the population living in it., The man-made city environment consumes excessive amounts of energy and materials and needs constant care, supervision and management to keep it habitable.
