Abstract

In this introduction, we will address the following topics. The first section will deal with the Anthropocene - What is it? When did it start? How did it develop? The second section will show how the concept works as a major bone of contention that divides the academic into those who consider the Anthropocene a planetary catastrophe and those who embrace the human domination over the Earth as a great achievement. The third section considers the biodiversity conservation options in the age of humans. The fourth and final section will provide an overview of this volume
