Describe some kinds of environment-related social change.
Ecology and environment have great impact on the society. Environment has a significant influence on the social structure especially in the primitive societies because the human beings were unable to control the environment.
In past the food habits, clothing, livelihood, patterns of social interaction were largely influenced by the climatic conditions of the environment but in modern societies the influence of environment has decreased due to the increase in technological resources.
The destructive changes that are caused by the natural disasters are often irreversible and it can lead to loss of livelihoods of people of the society which is affected by the disaster, like the earthquake in Bhuj, Gujarat.
However, the new discoveries in the field of environment also create new livelihood options for people and bring social change in the society.
