The native plants on these mountains vary in diversity. Many of the plants that can be found in the Appalachian Mountains to the west may be found hidden in these hills. Much of the vegetation common to the Piedmont may be sited here as well and lead to hybridization or species exclusively found at particular sites. This fact alone sometimes lead to an areas protection as well as the location itself being odd. Plants like the Georgia Oak is an uncommun species that can be found on Stone Mountain. The Smooth Purple Coneflower, broom sedge, blue wood sedge, sedge, wild oats, river oats, Canada wild rye, bottlebrush grass, Virginia wild rye, Virginia switchgrass, little bluestem, Indian grass, and the gama grass are all other vegetation found here.

•How have renewable and non-renewable resources in your region affected the economy and or environment in your region? Has this caused any conflict?
•How have push/pull factors affected the routes or flow of human migration in your region? (political, economic, social and/or environmental)
Renewable resources like trees and other things are totally fine but when it comes to non-renewable resources like gasoline and natural gas it's a problem. The high prices for gasoline is making people angry and they are getting into an argument with the government and amongst themselves, we just can't afford to pay so much for gas, we need an alternative. The oil drilling is also causing a stir because it is ruining our environment by taking away its natural oils, it's causing the land to sink.
I think that environmentally, people migrant here for it's beautiful environment. It has beautiful greenery and it seems to be very peaceful but alot of people could have left because of natural disasters or the high prices for non-renewable resources.
•Compare ways people depend on, adapt to and modify the physical environment of your region. Does this influence the culture and technology of your region?
•What are some consequences of extreme weather or natural disasters that have occurred in your region?
People in this region depend on the the fertile soil to help them grow their food and they adapt to their wooden surroundings that they use to build shelter. They probably modified how lakes and waterfalls were shaped so it could be safer for people or tourists and also cut down trees. Using the fertile soil has become a culture with the people that live in this region they hav always been surrounded by dirt and woodlands so it all became part of their culture. Modifying the lakes, harsh waterfalls and rivers can help this region grow with technology and help them put boats and other water equipment in the lakes and rivers. Clearing out some trees can help build new buildings and also make fire wood.
When the New Jersey Hurricane hit, it caused so much damage especially near the coast. Many buildings were damaged or destroyed, and damage across the state totalled $8 million. The consquenses of this disaster is that people knew we were not ready for this hurricane and that we did not put enough thought into our protection. This taught us that our land can be ripped away from us in a second and when that is going to happen again, we'll be ready for it.
•What is the affect on population distribution in your region?
•Have there been any challenges/benefits from globalization in your region? (has globalization affected the standard of living, have there been any pandemics, is there any loss of culture)
The affect on population distribution is not bad. There seems to be a problem with gasoline becoming expensive even though the region has one of the biggest oil ports but everything else seems to be fine with the plants and animals and etc.
Globalization had helped this region become a whole with different cultures as the different cultures would join and share similarities and differences but some cultures can just disappear after being present for a while.
