This block investigates the richest storehouse of the world's biological diversity. You will develop an understanding of the environmental science of tropical forests by exploring their role in global carbon and water cycles, and also as a genetic storehouse. While scientists only visit these forests, you will also make contact with indigenous communities who live there trying to secure the future of their forest home. Block 4 will discuss how your own daily choices as a consumer connect to the fate of what has been called'the Earth's lungs'.Unfortunately due to copyright restrictions the DVD material refered to in this book is not available for sale as a result study of some of the activities is limited.

Deep within the verdant tangles of the Brazilian Amazon near the mighty Xingu River live the Xikrin, a river-faring indigenous people who depend largely on the jungle and river system for their livelihood. Experts of their terrain, the Xikrin have adapted to the harsh realities of life in the Amazon, creating an oasis of human comfort in circular villages on the banks of the Bacaja River. Just a few miles away, however, rises the megalithic Belo Monte Dam, the third-largest dam in the world and Brazil's largest-ever infrastructure project. As the dam threatens to displace more than 20,000 people and to severely impact the river and surrounding forest, what will this mean for local people like the Xikrin, whose lives depend on the environment? The Vanishing Cultures Project went to the Amazon to document the Xikrin's lifestyle, deeply embedded in traditional hunting-and-gathering practices. Recording the legends and lore of how the Xikrin's ancestors came to live in harmony with the land around them, and capturing the first-hand accounts of Xikrin villagers, this book reflects the scenes, traditions, and stories of the Xikrin before the Belo Monte Dam alters the natural and cultural environment forever."

This is an innovative contribution to anthropology's interest in how identity is created and defined. Dr Harris uses two forms of ethnographic writing to explore the historical and social identity of a village of caboclo fisherpeople who live on the banks on the River Amazon. He intersperses his analytical chapters with narrative sections that describe more freely what the people do and how they do it. He thus moves beyond notions of identity that define themselves in collective, ethnic or class terms, by focusing on people's practical engagement with their environment. As the first full-length study of a modern Amazonian floodplain peasantry, this volume also contributes to debates in ecological and economic anthropology and to studies of the peasantry in Latin America.

Far into the Atlantic Ocean, the outflow from the Amazon River creates a "sweet sea" of fresh water. At the river's mouth, a vast delta of river channels and marshes, floodplain and upland forests, open and scrub savannas, floating meadows, and mangrove swamps hosts an astonishingly diverse assemblage of plant and animal life. So rich is this biological treasure house that early European explorers deemed it inexhaustible. In this highly readable book, Nigel Smith explores how human use of the Amazon estuary's natural resources has been affected by technological change, rapid urban growth, and accelerated market integration. Avoiding alarmist rhetoric, he shows how human intervention in the estuary has actually diversified agriculture and helped save floodplain forests from wanton destruction. His findings underscore the importance of understanding the history of land use and the ecological knowledge of local people when formulating development and conservation policies. The book will be of interest to everyone concerned with the fate of tropical forests, conserving biodiversity, and developing natural resources in a sustainable manner.
