Resumen

ZARO, Gregory et al. LANDSCAPE EVOLUTION AND HUMAN AGENCY: ARCHAEOLOGICAL CASE STUDIES FROM DRYLANDS IN WESTERN SOUTH AMÉRICA AND AUSTRALIA. Chungará (Arica) [online]. 2008, vol.40, n.especial, pp.261-271. ISSN 0717-7356.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-73562008000300004.

Landscapes represent a dynamic point of articulation between humans and the environment. While often dichotomized, humans are active participants in the environment and often play a pivotal role in its transformation over time. In this paper, we use case studies from western South América and Australia to ¡Ilústrate the importance of studying long-term dynamics between humans and the environment. Such investigations can bring significant historical depth to environmental change and the role humans have played in altering courses of landscape evolution and species biodiversity. Humans comprise a critical element in environmental change, and collectively, our results hold strong implications for issues related to sustainability and effective management of our planet's desert resources.

Palabras clave : Dryland environments; agriculture; sustainability; South América; Australia.
