Method 1

To make a copy of your root environment (named base), you can use following command; worked for me with Anaconda3-5.0.1:

conda create --name <env_name> --clone base

you can list all the packages installed in conda environment with following command

conda list -n <env_name>

Method 2

When setting up a new environment and I need the packages from the base environment in my new one (which is often the case) I am building in the prompt a identical conda environment by using a spec-file.txt with:

conda list --explicit > spec-file.txt

The spec-file includes the packages of for example the base environment.

Then using the prompt I install the the packages into the new environment:

conda create --name myenv --file spec-file.txt

The packages from base are then available in the new environment.
