In Zambia, as in the savanna sites in Congo, farmers incorporate unburned vegetation into mounds and consider it essential to maintain fertility, but dry-season fires do regularly occur, particularly in the dambos. World Bank, Washington, DC.

These dates correspond to those obtained from the sites of Arauquinoid tradition on the west coast of French Guiana and from the eastern coast of Suriname, supporting the attribution of the raised fields to the Arauquinoid groups that inhabited the sand ridges bordering the mound complexes, where huge archaeological sites of this tradition have been found Rostain These vary in shape, from round mounds usually about 1.

Agricultural Change in the Bolivian Amazon. Field observations see below showed that boleetin large mounds are all occupied by large termite colonies, and appear to be termitaria that were incorporated as nodes in a network connected by ridges.

Part of the vast complex of abandoned raised fields in the Boletkn Macoua Savanna in the rainy season April Revista de Arqueologia Once constructed, mounds attracted organisms whose activities maintained these elevated structures. Incidentally co- evolved plants encompass species that exploit areas disturbed by humans, especially slashing and burning forests to create room for crop production.

Furthermore, during the rainy season earthworms concentrate in mounds, arqueolotia they can respire, and thus their casts are also concentrated on mounds Figure 2.

How intensive and productive this kind of agriculture really was, and whether it supported dense populations, are questions as hotly debated as those concerning Amazonian forests Bandy ; Iriarte et al. Amerinc Studies in Archaeology, Vol.

Our results showed that raised fields, after being abandoned by humans, were re-engineered by soil engineer organisms such as ants, termites, earthworms and plants McKey et al.


If micro-organisms of these habitats, for example, are particularly adapted to waterlogged, anaerobic soils, or to soils that are frequently moved between waterlogged and aerobic conditions, then their actions may have contributed in unsuspected ways to the functioning of raised- field agriculture. In the first, we explore the present- day ecology of seasonally flooded tropical savannas.

Regrowth forests around former human settlements are thus often orchards. As we have seen, this assumption must be questioned. Sin embargo, la zona fue estudiada solo recientemente.

Nitrogen fixation in soils and canals of rehabilitated raised-fields of the Bolivian Altiplano. Many vestiges of raised fields include structures such as long, parallel rectilinear or curvilinear ridges, features for which there still appear to be no plausible explanation at least in the essentially flat landscapes of seasonally flooded savannas other than a man-made origin.

Ethnology of the Least Known Continent. Furthermore, plant domestication arqueolpgia often seen as a linear progression from a wild plant to a fully domesticated crop with various stages in between.

A fundamental, but still debated, question about raised-field agriculture is how extensive it really was. D dissertation, University of Pittsburgh. In drawing them to the attention boleti archaeologists, we emphasize the necessity to examine the different features of each landscape before concluding on their natural or human origin.
