Nature & Environment

Long before mankind emerged as the dominant species, the natural world
existed with a tectonically evolving geology; intertwined ecosystems and
climates ; and, ever changing oceans, freshwater bodies and atmospheres.
Yet, the emergence of Man (inclusive of the ladies) meant massive and
irreversible waves of extinction, domestication, ecological collapse, invasive
species, resource exploitation, and the resulting toxicity of the oceans and the
atmosphere. Understanding how nature and our environment have evolved
over time and across the globe is key to understanding the challenges that
humanity faces in its immediate future. MapStory offers this space for all kinds of
StoryLayers and MapStories, both historical and present-day, which capture the
dynamics of our natural world, and the ways in which has shaped it.
