O (∩_∩) O~ The first time when we were watching this photographic diagram as teaching material, my opinion was: this diagram might be divided according to racial differences. Why have I gotten this opinion? I haven't seen the introduction and the names of belts upon it.

I thought 'Bio-geography' - distributing upon natural belts, peoples' tiny differences have been enlarged alongside the changing of climates. Peoples living near the seas and lacks will be different to peoples living near the mountains. People's differences in skins, skeletons, hairs, and eyes 'colours also belong to the category of Bio-mapping. Afterwards, I have done the tests by searching several terms titled in this diagram. 'Anatolian', 'Atlantic', 'Macaronesia’, and 'Mediterranean' etc. - they can also stand for the original tribes who were living there.

However, my father didn't agree with my idea. He pointed out that the 'black sea', 'Alpine', 'continental' and 'Boreal' etc. were almost describe the natural belts which was influenced by the geographical terrains, such as the seas, rivals and the mountains; then, the bio-features of the animals and plants have been varying accordingly. The further searching of the information about these terms associated me to find more. Some ancient titles of these belts made from Greek, such as Atlantic and Anatolian, also involved the multiple-dimensions information of cultures, customs, religions and beliefs originally from nature.

Bio-geography - I thought this neo-subject has crossed multiple-fields. The divisions made in this diagramming map might investigate the local peoples' customs of calling themselves and the areas what names, then they would be accepted easily. I also thought: it should be made out by accumulating different layers of the races, terrains, climates, histories and the diversity of species together, which wanted to give a sense of ecology's distribution arranged from humanities to natural sciences holistically. Critically thinking of this point, I thought: if the layers can be structured and grouped clearly and briefly, it would be easier for us to understand, and easier for the tertiary teaching and learning.

All in all, Well-done, thanks! O (∩_∩) O~
