    The presence of trees in the farms is typically considered a good practice in water shed  management. Therefore, it was examined the voluntary adoption of land uses considered more compatible with the water ecosystem service (shade coffee and woodland) in the region of Trifinio (located in Honduras and Guatemala), where there is not given any incentives or payment for this environmental service. It was observed low adoption of these land uses on small farms.

    Tropical rainforest currently covers more than 90% of French Guiana. Population growth, however, puts pressure on the land, resulting in increased deforestation, partly due to the need for greater agricultural production. Changes in land use are known to alter biogeochemical processes, including greenhouse gas emissions (GHGs).[br/]This study investigates the effects of the conversion of tropical forest to cultivation on soil n2o emissions. The study was carried out over a complete crop cycle at the experimental site combi (french guianese coast).

    Este trabalho visa analisar a organização espacial das comunidades pesqueiras a partir da lógica do desenvolvimento capitalista e seus desdobramentos no modo de vida dos grupos que fazem parte de reservas extrativistas marinhas. A análise geográfica adotada na investigação incorpora as relações de gênero, trazendo para o debate a divisão do trabalho e o uso dos recursos naturais decorrentes tanto das diferenças sociais estabelecidas entre homens e mulheres como das variadas relações socioespaciais.
