With the waterways, these cities gradually became world trading centers. Moreover, the rivers allowed for an efficient use of waterpower to propel running factories. However, the South's climate is also warm and sunny with long summers and mild winters; there is also a plentiful of rain. This makes the South's climate ideal for agricultural production and harvesting materials needed for houseware such as cotton. Additionally, the South thrived from their example fertile soil due to their enhanced ability to grow crops.
This land was good for rye, corn, wheat and also some vegetables. Due to this, they are now known as the “Breadbasket” colonies. However, the climate in the Southern Colonies was perfect for farming. It was very warm all year long and with just the right amount of rain. This made it so they had a very long growing season
Its rich soil allowed farmers to plant a variety of crops. The middle colonies’ had a very diverse economy that was influenced by both the southern and New England colonies. One of the main parts of the colonies’ economy was farming. The rich soil and plenty of sunshine and rain made it ideal for growing grains and tobacco. In fact the middle colonies are nicknamed the
In fact, with all their differences, the three regions later combined to create the great nation known today as the United States. One of the big differences between the three regions was their topography and climate, which led to different types of agriculture. For instance, the New England Colonies had many mountains and forests due to its glaciers. Since it had sandy soil, short summers and long lasting winters, the Puritans who landed in New England weren’t able to farm many types of crops. The cold weather negatively impacted their agriculture.
Economy: agricultral, plantations, cash crops play a big role in the economy. Goverment: proprietary colonies royal colonies. Culture: 81% white people and 11% black people. Middle colonies Geography: Has a good climate, and rich land allowed farmers to grow crops. To the east is the Alantic ocean and to the west is the Appalachian mountains.
The New England had very little fertile land, with extreme weather and rocks frozen to the dirt making agriculture hard. In time, they would create a diverse agricultural system to create food for its inhabitants which included fishing as the citizens became top notch shipwrights. So, it turned to industrial endeavours due to the high number of raw resources in the region. The higher population, due to the fertile nature of the inhabitants, could easily support the growing industry of New England. Due to its isolated location with possible enemies surrounding them, the Puritan beliefs tied the families of New England together and united them.
Most people in Honduras live in the north where most of the factories for work are located, but indigenous people and anyone else living in the rural areas deal with most of the effects of deforestation. When you remove large areas of forest the climate will begin to change and effect anyone living around it. Since Honduras is a poor country it is harder to protect yourself from environmental changes. Also, by deforestation the water sources they use are no longer protected and leave rural and urban areas without good drinking water. Illegal logging is still a rising problem, because those doing so are not having to pay taxes on sales to other countries, and this is taking away from all wood sellers in the Honduras community.
The climate and topography were a big part of why such big differences existed. New England was a very cold region, it was the coldest out of the two other regions. It had very bad soil since, during the ice age large glaciers scraped away all the rich soil and displaced it south to the middle colonies. This left a rocky land which made farming very challenging. It affected the agriculture because there was very bad soil which meant that the crops that the farmers grew were only enough to feel their own way.
In order for the people to survive they have to hunt and trap the animals, so they can have food. They cannot have food from vegetation because the climate is too cold. In Montane Cordillera Ecozone, it has The Rocky Mountain range, which is composed of small mountains. Which is totally different from Terrestrial Ecozone. The activities that can be done is forestry, it is because there are a lot of vegetation such as herbs, lichens and mosses.
Therefore, the main influencer was the geography and natural features of the land. In the southern colonies the soil was fertile and ample for farming while the lumber and farmland was plentiful, thus creating an ideal situation for plantations. The people of the southern colonies responded to the authority of the land and created colonies centered on farm life. Due to the scattering of plantations
In the North the economy consisted of industrial machines and factories used to produce goods. Railroads were also used for fast communication and trade, and immigrants came to work at these factories, which led to cheaper labor. In the South it was much more of a rural based society that included a lot of farming and agriculture. Crops were relied on heavily as a form of profit. The rivers were what the South used to transport good, and as a result led to slow communication.
