    Description

    This chapter describes past interaction of human populations with habitats on mainland Yap and the dynamics of the agroecosystem that developed. Recent changes in this system on mainland Yap are described, followed by a description of the nature and threats to agriculture in the Outer Islands. The chapter concludes by asking “Where to now?” and considers a past agricultural intensification relevant to meeting future challenges.
