The Anthropocene Extinction

Part of: Evolution and Extinction

Course description

The impact of human activities on the Earth system are becoming so great that scientists have coined a new geological epoch: The Anthropocene. The Anthropocene is also resulting in a sixth great mass extinction event of hundreds of species and in turn, is changing the direction of biological evolution on Earth. We will examine how over the past 20,000 years, humans instigated a major large mammalian faunal extinction. We will also study how in the past 150 years or so, human impacts to the land, oceans, ice, atmosphere and the climate system are radically changing Earth’s systems and its inhabitants.
