*Many or most internet sources, to include scientific ones, call the process of unintentional human influenced natural selection artificial selection. Some call it natural and outside scientific sources call it artificial. The most precise term would be "unintentional human influenced natural selection" but that's so long and artificial selection is perhaps not accurate if the selection process is a result of our natural population growth. Since nobody has yet come up with a great term, I'll be the first to call it "human byproduct evolution".
Human byproduct evolution - evolution of species as a result of unintentional human influences over natural selection.
Human byproduct extinction - the unintended extinction of any species as a result of human influences.
