READING
 The term
environment 
 broadly indicates the surroundings of an
individual
organism or a community of organisms, ranging on up to the entire
 biosphere,
the zone of Earth that is able to sustain life. By surroundings is meant all
the
nonliving and living materials that play any role in an organism's
existence,
from soil and air to what the organism feeds on and the organisms that
may
feed on it. Any other factors acting on the organism, such as heat and light
and
gravitation, make up its environment as well. In the case of human
 beings,
cultural factors may also be included in the
term.
