  1. Methods in historical ecology : insights from Amazonia

    Abingdon, Oxon ; New York, NY : Routledge, 2021

    "This book presents some of the most recent tools, methods and concepts in historical ecology. It introduces students and researchers to state of the art techniques and showcases a wide array of methods dedicated to understanding the history of tropical landscapes. The chapters cover the detection and characterization of archaeological features, living organisms as witnesses of past human activities, ethno-ecological knowledge of ancient anthropogenic landscapes, and societal impacts of historical ecology. Whilst mainly based on Amazonian experiences, the contributions aim to strengthen synergies between disciplines and to propose solutions that can be applied elsewhere in the field"--This book presents some of the most recent tools, methods and concepts in historical ecology.

  2. Climatic and ecological change in the Americas : a perspective from historical ecology

    Abingdon, Oxon ; New York, NY : Routledge, 2024.

    "This book offers a comparative analysis of the experiences, responses, and adaptations of people to climate variability and environmental change across the Americas. It foregrounds historical ecology as a structural framework for understanding the climate change crisis throughout the region and throughout time. In recent years Indigenous and local populations in particular have experienced climate change effects such as altered weather patterns, seasonal irregularities, flooding and drought, and difficulties relating to subsistence practices. Understanding and dealing with these challenges has drawn on peoples' longstanding experience with climate variability and in some cases includes models of mitigation and responses that are millennia old. With contributions from specialists across the Americas, the volume will be of interest to scholars from fields including anthropology, archaeology, geography, environmental studies, and Indigenous studies"--
