Natural region


Natural region

A Natural region is one which is distinguished by its natural features of geography and usually more important, geology. The natural ecology of the region is likely to be significant but one of these factors tends to influence the others.

The term is particularly useful where there is no corresponding or coterminous official region. The Fens of eastern England and the Pays de Bray in Normandy, are examples of this. Others might include an upland massif of acidic rock or The Burren, in Ireland.
