In a world where survival of the fittest is the rule, it comes as no surprise that many plants and animals had disappeared when sudden changes in the environment occurred in the past. However, comes the epoch of humans, or the Anthropocene, the rates of extinction of species are a thousand times faster than the background rate. Is this a serious problem? What are the causes? Do human and climate change play a significant role? Is there anything we can do to avert the eventuality of an imminent mass extinction?
