This dynamic timeline of environmental history sent to me by Stewart Brand is a nice overview starting over 2000 years ago.  I especially like that it points out that we humans are not new to altering our natural environment in detrimental ways.  However it does seem to omit the Native American story of hunting and land use that drastically altered the ecosystems of the Americas.
