    All of the temporary camps are located along permanent water sources. These are abandoned for the permanent villages in July and early August. Figure 1.

The Ucayali region in the Central Peruvian Amazon is one of the four lowland Amazon states of the country and represents approximately 8% of Peru’s national territory.

The population in Ucayali has grown from ab people in to more thanin (INEI, ).Cited by: Spatial patterns of natural resource depletion among rain forest communities in the Peruvian Amazon: the role of protected areas and indigenous territories in the conservation of key species by Laura Christine Bryson A thesis submitted in conformity with the requirements for the degree of Master of Science Geography DepartmentAuthor: Laura C.

In the Peruvian Amazon, peatlands lie primarily in the Pastaza‐Marañon Basin, where they cover M ha, harbor peat deposits up to m thick and store around Pg C, that is, almost half the aboveground biomass C stock of Peruvian forests (Asner et al., ; Draper et al., ; Lähteenoja & Page, ).

The average proportion of pasture around Tsimane’ villages (%) is also low in comparison with findings in other studies.

In various regions of the state of Rondônia, Brazil, researchers found that pastures accounted for 15% (Batistella, Brondizio, & Moran, ) to as much as 66% (Ferraz, Vettorazzi, Theobald, & Ballester, ) of the.

Later, when Kuben-kran-ken and Aukre had a falling out, Moikarakô, a relatively new village that had not yet established market activities, was the suggested substitute. The logic behind the substitution of Moikarakô for Kuben-kran-ken becomes apparent when one considers the relations among the three villages.

We consider the recent deforestation impacts of oil palm within the context of general agricultural development and protected areas in the Peruvian Amazon. We examined the extent and spatial pattern of oil palm plantation development and its distribution relative to the physical environment, human population, and accessibility.

Wildlife has been traditionally used by forest communities as a source of protein, and the Peruvian Amazon is no exception. The articulation of colonist and indigenous communities to urban centers and markets results in changes in livelihood strategies and impacts on wildlife populations.

To address the threat of overhunting and forest conversion, we provide a generalized characterization of. Enhancing the overall health and sustainability of the ecosystem rests in our ability to understand the interactions among natural resource use, land use change, and human health.

An ecosystem approach focuses on the relationships between such components, identifying the key causal linkages and feedback that determine system health.

In the Peruvian Amazon, this type of investigation at a national scale is of strategic importance, in face of the fact that the wildfires occur as a direct consequence of agricultural activities (cropping and cattle raising) undertaken in small rural properties.

Infectious disease dynamics are affected by human mobility more powerfully than previously thought, and thus reliable traceability data are essential.

In rural riverine settings, lack of infrastructure and dense tree coverage deter the implementation of cutting-edge technology to collect human mobility data. To overcome this challenge, this study proposed the use of a novel open mobile mapping. The mainstem Amazon floodplain, with less than 2% of the total basin area, accounts for about 12% of the basin’s wetlands.

Basin-wide, about three-fourths of wetlands are covered by forest, woodland or shrubland. All large watersheds west of the Negro are at least 85% forested.

The Madeira basin has the highest percentage of herbaceous wetlands. Here, we use spatially explicit analyses of climate, remote sensing, and census information to quantify the contribution of climate (drought), land use patterns, and socioeconomic factors, namely rural migration, to fire activity (occurrence and frequency) at the province scale in the Peruvian Amazon (, km 2; Fig.

S2) between and Peter Revere Claggett has written: 'The spatial extent of resource use activities among three villages in the Peruvian Amazon' -- subject(s): Natural resources. Destructive fires in Amazonia have occurred in the past decade, leading to forest degradation, carbon emissions, impaired air quality, and property damage.

Here, we couple climate, geospatial, and province-level census data, with farmer surveys to examine the climatic, demographic, and land use factors associated with fire frequency in the Peruvian Amazon from to Among the projects described here are studies of land degradation in the Peruvian Amazon, settlement patterns in the Pacific northwest, ethnic distribution within the Los Angeles garment industry, and prehistoric sociopolitical development among the Anasazi.

In this article we illustrate how fine-grained longitudinal analyses of land holding and land use among forest peasant households in an Amazonian village can enrich our understanding of the poverty/land cover nexus.

We examine the dynamic links in shifting cultivation systems among asset poverty, land use, and land cover in a community where poverty is persistent and primary forests.

For thousands of years, and continuing today, native peoples of the Amazon basin have practiced traditional shifting cultivation, which combines farming with forested habitats.

Shifting cultivation, sometimes called swidden or slash and burn, is commonly found throughout the Amazon and other tropical regions worldwide. Development Geography Dr. Oliver T.

The use of new protein sources for the human population is also of great social interest. Rational use of native resources can be a beneficial process, resulting in economic and social advantages, while at the same time reducing damage to wild animal populations.

In this study, we present quantitative evidence on how the acoustically active fauna is responding to different forest management activities in the Peruvian Amazon. Acoustic space use was highest in the FSC certified sites, which is likely correlated with.

Peruvian Amazonia (Spanish: Amazonía del Perú) is the area of the Amazon rainforest included within the country of Peru, from east of the Andes to the borders with Ecuador, Colombia, Brazil and region comprises 60% of the country and is marked by a large degree of biodiversity.

Peru has the second-largest portion of the Amazon rainforest after the Brazilian Amazon. Land use change (LUC) is a main cause of global environmental change, and is an important activity to be studied.

Our research aims to examine the current state of evidence on the link between LUC and human health in the Amazon region. We conducted a scoping review of literature in two research databases, resulting in 14 papers for analysis.

The most important trade routes providing urban markets with bushmeat are (1) from the Javari River to Atalaia do norte, Benjamin Constant and Tabatinga; (2) from Peruvian villages in the Atacuari and Amazon River to Caballococha; (3) from communities along the Loretoyacu and Amacayacu rivers, wetlands of Tarapoto lakes to Puerto Nariño and (4.

Spatial extent of wildlife harvest. To evaluate effects of roads on spatial extent of hunting by Waorani, we used two approaches. First, we compared spatial extent of projected harvest area (km 2) in the absence of the road with spatial extent of the observed hunting area.

Second, we evaluated probability of hunting across the landscape as a. The rainforest section of Mongabay is divided into ten "chapters" (the original text for the site was a book, but has since been adapted for the web), with add-on content in the form of special focal sections (e.g.

The Amazon, the Congo, REDD, New Guinea, Sulawesi, Forests in Brazil, etc), appendices, and other resources. San Miguel is a village of households (latest available statistics; INEI, ), principally making their living from agricultural production.

It is located along the Fernando Belaunde highway, in an area deforested to a very large extent, degraded and densely populated (in a Peruvian Amazonian perspective, meaning ~17 persons/[2]). During a week-long cruise on the Amazon River in Peru I had a lot of time to observe life on the river.

While we spent a majority of our time looking for wildlife there were always local people around going about their daily lives. They were as interested in watching us as we were watching them. Knowledge of the extent of land use activities in the watershed and their relative importance to local employment increases the chances for a management initiative to succeed.
