Economic and social changes have been gradually affecting landscape and physical environment over a period of more than 6000 years but one of the first signs of awareness was the report on Man and Nature written by G.P. Marsh in 1864 and only in 1922 the title was explicit: Man as a Geological Agent in the work of the British geologist Robert Lionel Sherlock as well as in the 1956 massive volume edited by W.L. Thomas: Man’s Role in Changing the Face of the Earth.
