ISTHMUS - A narrow piece of land, with water on each side, connecting two larger landmasses. Isthmi are naturally good places to build canals. The Panama Canal, for instance, which connects the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans, drastically reduces the naval travel time between the east and west coasts of America.
