Resumen

DUNNING, Nicholas p et al. A TALE OF TWO COLLAPSES: ENVIRONMENTAL VARIABILITY AND CULTURAL DISRUPTION IN THE MAYA LOWLANDS. Diálogo Andino [online]. 2013, n.41, pp.171-183. ISSN 0719-2681.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0719-26812013000100011.

An expanding array of data is becoming available on past climate changes affecting the Maya Lowlands region. We examine the strengths and weaknesses of these data sets, both in terms of identifying general trends and specific events. We then use these data to develop a model based on adaptive cycles that addresses both environmental and cultural changes that occurred in the Terminal Preclassic and the Terminal Classic periods in several areas of the Maya Lowlands. In particular, we compare the variable experiences and trajectories of several ancient communities located in the elevated interior region with others situated on lower elevation coastal plains. In general, communities in lower elevation areas proved more resilient to environmental and cultural perturbations than those in the higher elevation interior

Palabras clave : maya lowlands; maya archaeology; paleoclimate.
