Abstract

Many changes have taken place in Amazonas Province of Venezuela, since Alexander von Humboldt's trip to the region. The most important changes today are in the way that land, which is inhabited by indigenous peoples, is being developed. There is an emphasis on small-scale, non-exploitative, sustainable agriculture, and on forest industries that are locally owned and operated. Cooperation with and protection of indigenous peoples and their environment, as opposed to the devastation caused by large-scale corporate industry, is of the utmost importance. This is very much in keeping with the legacy of Alexander von Humboldt.
