The environmental impact of agriculture in the developed world

Global environmental change: a natural and cultural environmental history: 185-222
The environmental impact of agriculture in the developed world
The increasing sophistication of agricultural techniques in the post-1750 period resulted in extensive landscape changes in the UK and Europe, as well as North America, Africa and Australia as European colonization proceeded. As agriculture in the developed countries has intensified since the Second World War to achieve self sufficiency in food production, older agricultural landscapes have been destroyed and replaced.
