Identifies four broadly shared historical processes that speeded environmental change from roughly 1500 to 1800 ce: intensified human land use along settlement frontiers; biological invasions; commercial hunting of wildlife; and problems of energy scarcity. This book considers each of these trends in a series of case studies.
