Los parques ecoarqueológicos en el área maya: algunos aspectos de su gestión The Eco-archaeological Parks in the Mayan Area: Some Aspects About Management  [cached]
Juan García Targa
Estudios de cultura maya , 2012,
Abstract: La mayor sensibilidad en torno al patrimonio cultural es uno de los rasgos de la sociedad actual. Turistas y ciudadanos de las ciudades demandan mayores grados de protección a los restos del pasado y las autoridades políticas dan respuesta a esa demanda. En este sentido, los parques ecoarqueológicos son el reflejo de esa nueva oferta en la que muestras del pasado conviven con espacios de descanso con el objetivo de dar a conocer de forma sencilla y divertida periodos anteriores de las ciudades y pueblos. The major sensibility around the cultural heritage is one of the traits of the present society. Tourists and citizens ask for the best protection of the past material remains and the political authorities must to reply this question. In this sense, the eco-archaeological parks reflects this new cultural offers where past evidence remains coexist in repose spaces with the objective to show ancient periods of cities in a simple and enjoyable form.

User Surveys of Erzincan`s Urban Parks  [PDF]
Sevgi Yilmaz,Murat Zengin
Journal of Applied Sciences , 2003,
Abstract: User surveys are important sources of data to aid the planning, design and management processes of urban parks, This paper focuses on three parks in Erzincan for survey and evaluation purposes. To analyse the use of the parks, a literature survey and a questionnaire survey were carried out together. The former describes the distribution structure of the parks whereas the latter makes assessments by exploring the characteristics of park users, user satisfaction, reported problems and requirements. As a result, recommendations for future planning are suggested. Ideal urban parks were offered and with regard to public's expectations, information about what to do is given to the local authorities.
Parks and their users  [PDF]
Barbara Goli?nik
Urbani Izziv , 2008,
Abstract: This paper is concerned with urban parks and their use(r)s. It focuses on usage-spatial relationships from two different angles. Firstly, it discusses the actual uses mapped in places, using repeated observation on different days, times and weather conditions. Secondly, it addresses designers’ views and beliefs about usage and design of urban parks. However, the paper shows that designers’ beliefs and awareness about uses in places, in some aspects, differ from actual use. It stresses the use of empirical knowledge about usage-spatial relationships, which can be gained by using observation and behavioural mapping, in decision-making processes for parks design.
Chungará (Arica) , 2002, DOI: 10.4067/S0717-73562002000100005
Abstract: this paper presents the results of an investigation of ten mountains undertaken in 1983 in lauca and isluga national parks in northern chile. archaeological sites were surveyed on five of the summits and ethnographic information was collected in villages located near them. an inca figurine, made out of mullu shell (spondylus) was discovered on the surface at one of the sites. the survey helps extend our knowledge of the distribution and types of archaeological sites in northern chile
What’s new is old: Comments on (more) archaeological evidence of one-million-year-old fire from South Africa
Travis Rayne Pickering
South African Journal of Science , 2012,
Abstract: The essential roles of fire in human evolution and in humanity’s technological mastery of the natural world are disproportional to our understanding of its earliest domestication. Archaeologists researching relatively recent occurrences of fire, only after ~0.4 Ma and mostly in Europe, are particularly critical of earlier archaeological claims of fire from African sites older than 1.0 million years old.
Mind: An Archaeological Perspective  [PDF]
Liane Gabora
Quantitative Biology , 2013,
Abstract: What can relics of the past tell us about the thoughts and beliefs of the people who invented and used them? Recent collaborations at the frontier of archaeology, anthropology, and cognitive science are culminating in speculative but nevertheless increasingly sophisticated efforts to unravel how modern human cognition came about. By considering objects within their archaeological context, we have begun to piece together something of the way of life of people who inhabited particular locales, which in turn reflects their underlying thought processes.
Can Logging in Equatorial Africa Affect Adjacent Parks?  [cached]

Ecology and Society , 2005,
Abstract: Tropical deforestation can cause fundamental regional-scale shifts in vegetation structure and diversity. This is particularly true in Africa. Although national parks are being established to protect areas from deforestation and to conserve biodiversity, these parks are not immune to disturbances outside their boundaries. We used regional-scale atmospheric simulation experiments to investigate how deforestation in timber concessions might affect precipitation inside adjacent, undisturbed national parks in the equatorial African countries of Gabon and the Republic of Congo. The experiments revealed a complex response. Some parks showed rainfall reduced as much as 15%, while others showed slight increases. Rainfall inside parks was particularly sensitive to upwind deforestation along the path of airborne moisture traveling inland from the ocean. A variety of shortcomings in the current modeling procedures limit the ability to extrapolate from experiments such as ours to provide spatially explicit, long-term forecasts of climate. We describe what advances in modeling are needed to produce regional-scale predictions that are robust enough to be useful to managers and policy makers.
Miniature Parks and the Sample of Miniaturk  [PDF]
Zohre Bulut,Hasan Yilmaz
Journal of Applied Sciences , 2006,
Abstract: Miniature parks are outdoor facilities where some of the historical and cultural heritages of a country are displayed as miniature models in specially-designed gardens. In this study, the significance of miniature parks, which form a new park area identity, carrying various cultural and social functions, is discussed in comparison with other urban recreational areas. The information concerning the design of Miniatürk, the first miniature park in Turkey, is presented as well as a thorough examination of other similar parks in the world. Some suggestions are also made about the planning and design principles of miniature parks.
