Hall, M L, C. How did raised-field agriculture function? Field observations see below showed that the large mounds are all occupied by large termite colonies, and appear to be termitaria that were incorporated as nodes in a network connected by ridges. Economic Botany 58 2: Fishermen of pulpp Bangweulu Swamps: Nitrogen fixation in soils and canals of rehabilitated raised-fields of the Bolivian Altiplano.

The grapefruit-shaped fruits, cm in diameter, are broken open and the raqueologia yellow pulp surrounding the seeds is then eaten.

It is time for new approaches. Practice, agenc,y and the archaeology of violence; Axel E.

This article proposes a model of interpretation for the sculptures of the San Augustin culture from an innovative view, based on some recent theories on Amerindian art.

Manco Capac, Rio Theobroma bicolor in bolwtin village. Whether people are aware of their interactions with soil engineers, and whether human-constructed parts of dd landscape correspond to a deliberate social project or emerge from a succession of individual projects realized over a long period of time, are also open questions. These photographs show part of the sequence. The fruits are gathered in the wild and as well as in home gardens huertas and fields chacras.


We studied how the vestiges of these zrqueologia agricultural landscapes function as ecosystems today. No tiene fecha segura pero coincide con la llegada de los portugueses capitaneados por Pedro de Texei- ra en Soil, vegetation and crop residues are added to the platform.

Energetic efficiency and political expediency in Titicaca Basin raised field agriculture. It is thus not surprising that many organisms other than humans have evolved the capacity to build elevated structures in these arquologia, concentrating this key resource in patches within an otherwise inundated landscape.

Cocona Solanum sessiliflorum, Solanaceae was domesticated in central arqjeologia western Amazonia, or possibly the Upper Orinoco, where wild and cultivated forms are found Max et al.

Our observations cast a different light on this hypothesis. Cocona likely turned up as a weed in manioc gardens or around villages thousands of years ago and was eventually recruited as a crop. Because the rates at which specialized engineers move earth is likely to be much greater than in French Guiana, their effect on maintaining abandoned fields against erosion will be greater.

The Ticuna are particularly fond of the fruit and over time they have selected many varieties Kerr and Clement, Solanum stramonifolium thrives in poor soils, unlike tomatoes, which require fertilizer and a lot of care in the Amazon, including regular watering and spraying with pesticides and fungicides.

A single large earthworm species appears to be the builder of surales mounds in Colombia. They can only maintain mounds that were constructed by humans, and can do this only where conditions favor their activity.

Aquatic macrophytes further contribute to organic matter production.

According to this view, if these systems were sustainable, this may have been only because the pressure on resources was held low, by low densities of humans shifting over the mosaic landscape in time. Revista de Arqueologia Ecology of pre-Columbian raised-field agriculture in South America: This constraint characterizes all seasonally flooded savannas. Furthermore, as noted above, no one appears to have asked why various types of earth mounds of natural origin are so frequently found in the same kinds of environments where humans often constructed large complexes of similar mounds.
