The landscape is continually changing under the influence of many different forces. Natural change happens as a result of climatic and geological processes, and the migration of animals and plants. The landscape is also shaped by human activities such as agriculture, industry, leisure, and forest management, all of which are strongly influenced by social, economic and political factors.
