The original natural habitat of the human species was likely the savanna of East Africa. The large river valleys of the world, such as the Nile, Tigris-Euphrates, Yellow, Ganges, Amazon, Mississippi, supported the first urban human habitats. In pre-history, these rivers were used as a source of fresh water & food (fish and game animals), as well as a place to wash, and a sewer. These relatively resource rich areas also boasted flood plains which could support agriculture, expediting the evolution of cities as a human habitat.
'Habitat' is also defined as a home/building.
Specific human habitats include:
- Dwellings and shelters
