Since the end of the Pleistocene, humans have transformed nature in the new world. For more than 10.000 years, humans developed sophisticated forms of social and political organizations, at the same time, domesticated plants, animals, and transformed nature to create the anthropogenic landscape we observe today. Incredibly, some of the so-called "pristine" areas believed to be untouched by humans, constitute part of those anthropogenic transformed landscapes. In this talk, Dr. Delgado will discuss how the Galapagos Islands, and the Upper Amazonian region apparently "pristine" areas constitute anthropogenic transformed landscapes.
