Forest resource use change during early market integration in tropical rain forests: the Huaorani of upper Amazonia


Forest resource use change during early market integration in tropical rain forests: the Huaorani of upper Amazonia



Ecological Economics Amsterdam 30(1): 107-119



DOI: 10.1016/s0921-8009(98)00101-3

This paper examines the impact of early market integration on the extraction of forest resources by traditional forest-based households, with emphasis on the commercial-subsistence dichotomy. Empirical analysis of resource use transition among the Huaorani People of the Ecuadorean Amazon shows that as markets become more accessible production patterns change but do not seem to affect subsistence production. Huaoranis increase the production of animal resources from forests.
