Abstract

This book is the result of an international project developed in 4 countries. It is a version, revised and shortened, in Portuguese, of the book "Acqua come patrimonio – Esperienze e savoir faire nella riqualificazione delle cita d’acqua e dei paesaggi fluviali" (Romeo Farinella, Ed., Aracne publisher, Rome). It is divided into 3 parts. The first part discusses the problematics. In the second part, taking the form of Atlas, we make a diagnosis of the four territories. Finally, the third part presents the four project proposals, consolidating ideas and concrete measures for the territories covered by the project. Inserted in very different contexts, from several points of view, and framed on scales also very different, the four territories are studied and problematized from a common perspective. The water, under the various forms in which it is present in each territory, is seen as an urban planning tool, in order to facilitate methodological approaches and the comparison of experiences suitable for opportunities of urban and landscape renewal based on the presence of water.

Abstract

O rio Iguaçu nasce na confluência dos rios Atuba e Irai, e desemboca no rio Paraná, em Foz do Iguaçu. A ictiofauna deste rio, desde os primeiros trabalhos realizados, sempre foi considerada pobre e de pequeno porte, entretanto, apresenta um elevado grau de endemismo favorecido pelo surgimento das Cataratas do Iguaçu, que exerceram um papel fundamental neste processo. Esta obra busca uma fonte aglutinadora, mas sintetizada, sistematizada, especializada e atualizada das informações publicadas, até o momento, sobre a ictiofauna do baixo rio Iguaçu, fornecendo chaves de identificação, caracterizações morfológicas, fotos, dados sobre a biologia e distribuição geográfica das espécies registradas na região, além de um glossário com termos técnicos.

Abstract

Bolivia y Brasil comparten una de las cuencas más atractivas y preservadas de la te-giuri amazônica: la cuenca del rio llénez o Guaporé, que escurre tanto sobre el lecho rocoso del Escudo Precámbrico Brasilefto como sobre las Hanuras del Beni. Estas influencias hacen que la cuenca del iténez tenga una elevada heterogeneidad de habitats, una fauna acuálica peculiar y un alto valor de conservation. Este patrimo­nio binacional posée un potencial importante para la conservación de la diversidad regional y cl dcsar rollo sostcniblc participativo de las comunidades locales. El libro contiene un resumen del conotimìento de la cuenca y sus recursos, generado en los últimos 10 anos por un equipo de investigadores bolivianos, brasilefios y de otras nacionalidades. Se presenta una descripeión del medio fisico, así como resultados relevantes sobre la biodiversidad acuática, con énfasis en algas, peces, reptiles y mamíferos. El aporte más notable del libro, adernas de la descripeión ecológica del ecosistema, son las lecciones aprendidas que surgieron de experiências locales sobre la élaboration participativa de herramientas para la gestion de los recursos hidrobiológicos.

Abstract

This book is one of the outcomes of the project Cultivated Wilderness: Socio-economic development and environmental change in pre-Columbian Amazonia (http://www.cultivated-wilderness.org/). The project has particularly focused on the previously relatively unknown prehistory of the Amazonian hinterland. Our work has revealed that pre-Columbian settlements in the Santarém region in the State of Pará, Brazilian Amazonas, were not (as formerly often assumed) limited to the vicinities of permanent water courses, such as rivers and lakes. On the contrary, the majority of region’s archaeological sites are found in an upland area known as the Belterra Plateau, situated south of the present city of Santarém. Series of radiocarbon and luminescence dates link these sites to an expansion of human settlement occurring during the period A.D. 1300–1500. The period appears to have been associated with major transformations of the prehistoric societies, significant population growth and the development of new types of water management and agriculture. The workshop Beyond Waters: Archaeology and Environmental History of the Amazonian Inland formed part of the IX Sesquiannual Conference of the Society for the Anthropology of Lowland South America (SALSA), held in Gothenburg, Sweden in June 2014. The presenters and participants at the workshop included members of the Cultivated Wilderness-project, as well as partners and colleagues from several countries in Latin America and Europe. The contributions of the present volume span a wide range of subjects and fields, including archaeology, soil science, landscape archaeology, paleobotany, stylistic studies, historical information and digital mediation, which gives the book a broad thematic scope.

Abstract

¿Qué hace de la región de Coquimbo, en Chile, una región tan particular? La desertificación... ¿Estamos hablando de un fenómeno nuevo? Las Comunidades Agrícolas... ¿De dónde arrancan? y ¿Estamos ante el ocaso o la renovación de estas formas seculares de tenencia de la tierra y manejo agro pastoral? La pequeña agricultura... ¿Podrá contar con un sector pisquero reestructurado y nuevamente dinámico? Los Complejos Agro-Industriales... ¿Necesitarán todavía más flexibilidad laboral? Las aguas superficiales: ¿Un mercado transparente? El agua subterránea... ¿Estamos iniciando un nuevo ciclo de mal uso de los recursos renovables, como en el pasado con la vegetación? Finalmente, ¿es compatible un camino de desarrollo basado en la economía de exportación, y la mantención de equilibrios sociales y ambientales? Estas preguntas constituyen algunos de los ejes de las discusiones planteadas en este libro. Participaron en ellas académicos y profesionales de diversos orígenes disciplinarios : agronomía, arqueología, bio-climatología, cartografía, demografía, economía, edafología, geografía, historia, medicina-veterinaria.
