    Description

    The relationship of humans with Middle Rio Grande Basin ecosystems is complex. In historic times, humans had a critical role in the evolution of environmental landscapes and ecosystems throughout the Middle Rio Grande Basin. The relationship of humans with the land is based on and regulated by resource availability, environmental conditions, levels of technological knowledge, political and socioeconomic structures, and cultural values regarding the use of land and water. The general and specific impacts of historic human activities on Middle Rio Grande Basin ecosystems have only recently become a focus of researchers.
