Talking Anthropology, Climate and Weather Conference
Four fantastic talks from our team members in the UK will be given at this weekend’s Conference “Anthropology, Climate and Weather Conference” at the British Museum at our session:
P31. Indigenous populations-vegetation-climate relationship in the past: what can this teach us about sustainable vegetation use in the present?
The talks will include palaeoecological and archaeological findings and the meaning for human and climate:
- Francis Mayle, Ruth Dickau, Bronwen Whitney, Jose Iriarte. Pre-Columbian raised-field agriculture in Amazonian Bolivia — What lessons for sustainable land use today?
- Macarena Cárdenas, Francis Mayle, Jose Iriarte, Lauri Schorn. Dynamics of the Brazilian Araucaria forest and its responses to human land use and climate change, a long term perspective
