Cayley Originally Answered: Homework Help-2 Examples Of Our Natural Environment?
You could write about global warming, deforestation, extinction of various species due to habitat destruction/invasive species/slash and burn agriculture, overpopulation, dwindling natural resources due to overuse/waste, destruction of coral reefs, pollution, mining. Those are just some of the many ways our environment is being destroyed.

Cayley Originally Answered: Is environment social component or the natural?Explain how?
It depends on whether you are referring to "environment" as the way a person was raised or as the biological/chemical circumstances of one's creation and upbringing. One example from the first category, which is a social component, is when people use "environment" to refer to how parents socialized their child such that the child turned out to be gay. An example of the second case, natural, would be part of what Gaines called "local biologies" - the way cultural values (like ideals of beauty) influence selection for certain traits. Another example of the second includes an idea like perceived growing femininity in men being traceable to increased estrogen in drinking water due to pollution from pharmaceuticals. Both social and natural meanings are common, so the word straddles the divide. Depending on the course this work is for or the context clues, you'll have to infer which is applicable in any given situation.

When the issue of "Nature vs Nurture" comes up in psychology, e.g. in discussing what causes personality or intelligence, Nature refers to genetic makeup, and Nurture refers to environmental influences, i.e. those influences on the person after the effects of heredity. Google "nature vs nurture" and check out different sites. You will see that environment refers to social and other environmental influences. E.g. see nature vs nurture in wikipedia.

The environment is that which acts on the phenotype. That includes every thing from the genotype on.
