Human, Economic and Environmental Geography


Human geography is a branch of geography that deals with the study of people and their communities, cultures, economies, and interactions with the environment by studying their relations with and across space and place. Human geography attends to human patterns of social interaction, as well as spatial level interdependencies, and how they influence or affect Earth’s environment. It concentrates on the study of human activities by using qualitative and quantitative research methods. Economic geography is the study of place, distribution and spatial organization of economic activities across the world. It represents a traditional sub-field of the discipline of geography. However, many economists have also approached it in ways more typical of the discipline of economics. Economic geography is also defined by the geographers as the study of human economic activities under varying sets of conditions associated with production, location, distribution, consumption, and exchange of resources. Environmental geography is a branch of geography that describes the spatial aspects of interactions between humans and the natural world. It is the study of systematic description of different components of environment and interaction of human beings with these components. This book explains and examines various facets of the three related subjects of human, economic and environmental geography.
