stimulus diffusion → when a trait of one culture prompts invention or innovation in another.
region → a territory that encompasses many places that share similar attributes (may be physical, cultural, or both) in comparison with the attributes of places elsewhere.

systematic geography → the study of the earth's integrated systems as a whole, instead of focusing on particular phenomena in a single place.
