Past and present land-use patterns in tropical landscapes

Mini-symposium on the occasion of the PhD defences of André Braga Junqueira (CSA & KTI) and Catarina Conte Jakovac (FEM & SOQ).

Tropical landscapes encompass a wide array of land-use strategies. Past human occupation has largely transformed landscapes and left legacies that influence current land-use patterns around the tropics. At the same time, current economic and environmental changes are constantly influencing land-use systems and local livelihoods. In this symposium we will present different perspectives on how humans and landscapes mutually influence each other.
