How do Environmental Characteristics Effect the Human Characteristics in France
Environmental characteristics of France influences the human characteristics in many ways. People in France make houses with thick walls for insulation and shutters for security and insulation to keep warm from the cold average temp of 15 degrees. 35% of France's land is arable so there is lots of space to grow crops but since France is very cold they have to grow crops that only grow in the cold. In the cities of France the houses are built in clusters to save space for shops and other things but in the open countryside the houses are much more spread out.

How do Environmental
Effect the Human
Characteristics in the USA
Environmental characteristics in the USA influences the human characteristics in many ways. People of the USA build houses with cavity walls and some houses have metal floors for insulation to keep warm from the cold average temp of 20 degrees. In the USA 40% of the land is used for farming of some form, but since it is quite a cold climate they can only grow food that grows in the cold. They also have steep roofs so if it snows the snow will roll off of it because if it had a flat or not steep enough roof the house's roof would cave in.
