The incursion of Europeans into other areas of the world from the fifteenth
century onwards catastrophically resulted in genocide or the dispossession
and marginalization of indigenous peoples across the globe. It also caused
drastic changes in extra-European temperate as well as tropical environments.
As Alfred Crosby argues, environmental impact in the form of disease
human, plant and animal forest felling, the casual or systematic slaughter
of indigenous animals, and the introduction of European crops and livestock
were both prime cause and continuing consequence of environmental change
incurred through the post-1492 European diasporic intrusions
