Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document This source is primarily concerned with the relationship between a specific ecological system and the resulting cultural pattern. The author uses the Yaruro of the central Cinaruco area to illustrate this relationship using the indigenous tropical forest horticulture system as the ecological framework. There is much material on the physical area inhabited by the Yaruro, their subsistence activities, technological advancement, land use; and the lack of occupational specialization, social stratification, warfare, etc., as a result of the relationship between habitat and cultural complexity.
