Human impact on the environment or anthropogenic impact on the environment includes impacts on biophysical environments, biodiversity, and other resources.[1][2] The term anthropogenic designates an effect or object resulting from human activity. The term was first used in the technical sense by Russian geologist Alexey Pavlov, and was first used in English by British ecologist Arthur Tansley in reference to human influences on climax plant communities.[3] The atmospheric scientist Paul Crutzen introduced the term “anthropocene” in the mid-1970s.[4] The term is sometimes used in the context of pollutionemissions that are produced as a result of human activities but applies broadly to all major human impacts on the environment.[5]
