Ancient Amazonian societies managed the forest intensively but sustainably - here's what we can learn from them


The Amazon has long been thought of as an untrammelled ecosystem, a wilderness relatively untouched by humans. Indigenous peoples were presumed to be so few in number, and live so lightly on the land, that they had a negligible impact on the environment.
