Resumen

RIVERA-DIAZ, Mario A.. FOREST OF TAMARUGOS, AN ETHNOHISTORC APPROACH FOR THE STUDY OF PALEOCLIMATE IN THE ATACAMA DESERT. Diálogo Andino [online]. 2018, n.56, pp.119-139. ISSN 0719-2681.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0719-26812018000200119.

This paper complements the dendroarchaeology project by gathering data from maps, descriptions and observations from chroniclers, travelers, scientific missions, and church records, in historic times, in particular the existence of forests from XVI century on and the availability of water. By using ethnohistoric strategies about the dynamics of the landscape we tackle questions such as, what could have caused the loss of such big forests of Prosopis in some areas of the Atacama Desert? Were there any significant environmental changes that could have conditioned the arid landscape? What could have been the human impact on the environment and viceversa?

Palabras clave : Dendroarchaeology; tamarugos; ethnohistory; Pampa del Tamarugal; desierto de Atacama.
