For this question it asks, what types of material changes were made in building Greek temples and what effect this had on the architectural world.

In my book, It says how the earliest Greek temples were made of wood or brick, which later changed to marble and limestone. So i think that's the answer for the first part. For the second part, i cannot find out what effect the change had. Please help?

    Wood is easily destroyed by the elements and fire. Marble and limestone last forever. Hence, we still have most of the Parthenon on the Athens Acropolis. The Theater at Epidaurus is also largely intact.
