Human beings now live in what an increasing number of environmental scientists call the Anthropocene – a stage in the Earth’s geological and climate development that is dominated by the activities of humankind. Whether in the realm of conservation, biodiversity, evolution or climatology, no effective study of environmental issues can proceed without an understanding of human behaviour on both the large and the small scale.
