Name change[edit]

Change name to "Natural environment (Earth)" and resolve the merge dispute. Ccoatsworth (talk) 04:26, 28 September 2015 (UTC)

Merge nature and natural environment[edit]

(Similarities came up at [1]) The content and coverage seem very similar - I can't see any reason to have two articles. No suggestion as to what is the best title. (talk) 15:51, 5 June 2010 (UTC)

Agree - very similar content. JascalX (talk) 23:41, 25 July 2010 (UTC)

Don't merge nature and natural environment articles[edit] (talk) 07:56, 9 June 2010 (UTC) The term "Nature" includes outer space, other planets, the solar system, other solar systems, the universe, physics etc. The term "Natural environment" is generally used to describe the environment of the planet Earth.

Do you have any citation or reference to support this? /Natox (talk) 18:13, 9 June 2010 (UTC)
I am about to remove the merge proposal template. It's been seven weeks now. For further reasoning, pleas see recent thread at Talk:Nature. Thanks. ... Kenosis (talk) 05:00, 24 July 2010 (UTC)

Definition, again[edit]

I see that this discussion page reflects lack of satisfaction with definition since at least 2005, but I still find it is not satisfactory yet. As a reflection I propose to compare natural environment with ecosystem, and try to establish the differences between them. I also propose a quotation from Donald Symons: "An environment is not really natural or unnatural, but rather each of its aspects varies along a continuum of naturalness. "--Auró (talk) 22:43, 7 March 2012 (UTC)

Natural environment being a sub classification of environment, the first consideration should be to examine the environment definition. I have done it, and found that it can be improved. Since it is not logical to discuss about the environment (biophysical) article from here, I close this talk, and will start a new one there.--Auró (talk) 11:58, 11 March 2012 (UTC)


Environment is the that affects especially the circumstances and conditions of life of people or society as a whole. The totality of the natural, social and cultural values of a place and a particular time, that influences human life and future generations. That is, it is not just the space in which life unfolds but also covers living things, objects, water, soil, air and the relationships between them. The World Environment Day is celebrated on June 5. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 19:35, 24 October 2012 (UTC)

There is a desambiguation page for environment, containing the different meanings that the word can have, and linking to the pertinent pages.--Auró (talk) 21:04, 24 October 2012 (UTC)

Swiss Alps[edit]

Re the caption to the image of Bachalpsee in the Swiss Alps. I checked (googled) and found that this area is farmed meadow land (summer pasture) for cows, and maybe other animals. Rwood128 (talk) 23:59, 29 January 2015 (UTC)
