Description

As the global human population grows rapidly past the seven billion mark, the overexploitation of our planet goes on unabated to such an extent that there is now unequivocal evidence that Earth is experiencing the sixth major mass extinction of species in its evolutionary history (Wilson 1992, 2002), that warming of the global climate system is occurring and that this is almost certainly attributable to human activities (IPCC 2013). The global destruction and fragmentation of...[Show more]

dc.description.abstractAs the global human population grows rapidly past the seven billion mark, the overexploitation of our planet goes on unabated to such an extent that there is now unequivocal evidence that Earth is experiencing the sixth major mass extinction of species in its evolutionary history (Wilson 1992, 2002), that warming of the global climate system is occurring and that this is almost certainly attributable to human activities (IPCC 2013). The global destruction and fragmentation of habitats resulting in the parcelling up of landscapes have been caused by human population growth and development activities. This has resulted in the sixth mass extinction of biodiversity in the Earth’s evolutionary history and the first for 65 million years (Wilson 2002). Problems of this scale require big solutions.
