After Duwagan:
Deforestation, Succession and Adaption in Upland Luzon, Philippines

J. Peter Brosius

The University of Michigan Press 1999
A book review by Danny Yee © 1992 http://dannyreviews.com/
After Duwagan is a masters thesis based on fieldwork carried out among the Ayta people of the Philippines, recently driven from their homelands by the eruption of Mount Pinatubo. It is "ecological anthropology" or even pure ecology rather than social anthropology, since the Ayta are only discussed in so far as they affect the natural environment. The bulk of the work is a study of the diachronic development of different vegetation associations under the influence of swiddening, burning and logging regimes.

After Duwagan will be of interest to specialists in South-East Asian agriculture or ecological succession theory.

April 1992
