In 2017 a group of researchers led by ecologist Carolina Levis (National Institute of Amazonian Research / Wageningen University), among which the CSRio researcher André Junqueira, published an article in Science (http://science.sciencemag.org/content/355/6328/925) showing that the distribution of domesticated species in the Amazon forest is related to past human occupation patterns.
A group of researchers sent a reply to the article by Levis et al., in which they raise the possibility that the distribution of domesticated species could result from post- (and not pre-) Columbian human activity.
In reply to this criticism, the CSRio researcher André Junqueira and collaborators published a letter in Science. Download the letter here.
