Using a model calibrated to Khao Yai National Park in Thailand, this paper highlights the importance of generating explicitly spatial and temporal data for developing management plans for tropical protected forests. Spatial and temporal cost-benefit analysis should account for the interactions between different land uses – such as the benefits of contiguous areas of preserved land and edge Hollister Clothing Canada Online Shopping
effects – and the realities of villagers living near forests who rely on extracted resources. By taking a temporal perspective, this paper provides a rare empirical assessment of the importance of quasi-option values when determining optimal management plans.
The idea that houses and territories can be alternative systems for structuring society is undermining the traditional belief that lineages, clans and other systems based on kinship ties were the only conceivable principle of social organization in traditional communities. The concept of société à maison
(house society) developed by Lévi-Strauss is proving to be a useful tool in anthropology. However, only a few archaeological examples have been provided to date. Following Lévi-Strauss’ definition and drawing on different ethnographic cases of societies based on house and territory rather than kinship, an archaeological example from the Iberian Iron Age is explored.
