Anthrome Biodiversity

Human systems have reshaped biodiversity across the terrestrial biosphere

Anthromes undergo anthropogenic succession as native ecosystems are transformed into anthrome mosaics: multifunctional landscapes composed of a mix of Used and Novel ecosystems. 
Anthropogenic succession transforms biodiversity in biotic communities in response to cultivation, harvesting and management of populations, domestication (crops, livestock, ornamentals, pets, native cultivation), facilitated introductions and invasions of exotic species, as well as habitat fragmentation and the transformation of land into agricultural lands and settlements.
