    Evidence shows that women can benefit from having individualised land rights formalized in their names. However, similar evidence is not available for formalization of land rights that are based on collective tenure. Studies have estimated that as much as 65 percent of the world’s land is held under customary, collective-tenure systems. Improving tenure security for land held collectively has been shown to improve resource management and to support self-determination of indigenous groups.

    In the high Andes, environmental and socio-economic drivers are transforming agriculture and presumably affecting the in situ conservation of potato (Solanum spp.). To monitor the use and conservation of intraspecific diversity, systematic and comparative studies across agricultural land-use systems are needed. We investigated the spatial-temporal dynamics of potato in two landscapes of Peru’s central Andes: A highland plateau (Huancavelica) compared to an eastern slope (Pasco).

    Nuestra especie entró en grupos pequeños al continente americano a través de Beringia hace 20-15 000 años. Compartió con Siberia Oriental el chamanismo y con él la búsqueda de plantas y hongos alucinógenos y, como consecuencia, el conocimiento detallado de la flora y el continuo interés por experimentar. Al entrar en el interior del continente americano, nuestra especie contribuyó –por la caza continua– a la extinción de su megafauna.
