Abstract

Propomos aumentar o conhecimento sobre os impactos da construção e melhoramento em obras de infra-estrutura, nesse caso em particular das estradas, e nas relações entre as pessoas e a floresta. Este tema multifacetado será abordado por um complexo sistema de interações, com ênfase na dinâmica das redes ecológicas, sócio-econômicas e institucionais. Integraremos estes dados de pontos multi-temporais e espacialmente explícitos no sentido de compilar um banco de dados que promova um melhor entendimento da complexa dinâmica das mudanças trazidas por melhoria na infra-estrutura viária. Esta base de dados integrada permitirá modelagem espaço-temporal para comprovar várias expectativas sobre sistemas complexos, como por exemplo, impactos decorrentes de nova infra-estrutura em regiões dependentes de recursos naturais. Antecipamos que a pesquisa proposta melhorará modelos de bancos de dados integrados para pesquisa ambiental interdisciplinar, e a construção de uma teoria mais robusta das interações pessoa-meio ambiente, como meio de testar a teoria dos sistemas complexos e aplicações praticas para a área de estudo.------------------------------------------------------ We propose to advance understanding of road impacts on relationships between people and forests in two resource-dependent regions, the southwestern Amazon and north-central Florida. We approach this multifaceted topic by drawing on a complex systems framework, and focusing on the dynamics of socioeconomic, ecological and institutional networks. We will integrate these data for multiple time points in a spatially explicit fashion to compile a database that can provide a better understanding of the complex dynamics of change following infrastructure upgrades. This integrated database will also allow for spatio-temporal modeling to test a number of expectations about complex systems, applied to the case of various shocks brought by new infrastructure to resource-dependent regions. We anticipate that the proposed research will lead to improved design of integrated databases for interdisciplinary environmental research, more robust theory of human-environment interactions, a means of testing of complex systems theory, and practical applications to both study sites.
