Dr. Florencio Delgado
Director of Anthropology
Universidad San Francisco de Quito-Ecuador
Virtual Zoom Meeting

On Thursday, September 10th, Dr. Florencio Delgado will be "zooming" in from Ecuador for a LACS1000 lecture (9:35 am ET) open to the LACSI community! The presentation will be held over Zoom, please see below for the meeting link!


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.
