Explain the concept of environmental determinism with suitable examples.

Determinism refers to the point of view supporting environmental control on human action. Accordingly, history, culture, lifestyle and stage of development of a social group, society, or nation are largely governed by the physical factors, (like terrain, climate, fauna and flora) of the environment. The determinists generally consider humans as passive agents. For example: Benda, who lives in the wild of the Abujh Maad area of Central India.
