The Candelaria River watershed of Campeche, Mexico, and Petén, Guatemala, has shaped millennia of Maya, perhaps from their beginnings and generations of archaeologists. This chapter reviews efforts to understand Candelaria historical ecology over the past four decades, mostly in the northern branch, the Candelaria-El Caribe-Tomatillal system, as it relates to the cities of Calakmul and Uxul. Additional investigations stem from the river system farther north, the Champoton-Desempeño watershed, which also approaches Calakmul at its headwaters. Four other projects (Oxpemul, Yaxnohcah, Naachtun, Uxul) have emerged in the southern branches of the Candelaria and Desempeño in recent years, in addition to a long-standing project at El Mirador. Methods utilized range over global-local climate teleconnections, geology, ethnoecology, soil formation and transformation, geochemistry, pollen, and phytolith sampling. Brief but key statements of results for each method are reported as they contribute to a holistic perspective on the evolution and the death of Calakmul. Key interests that guided the research are the commercial location of the city and watershed in the Maya urban system, the way the watershed shaped the human settlement pattern in the west central Maya Lowlands, the socio-ecological adaptations over time, and its utility as a middle-level unit of study in links between human and Earth system changes. Finally, a nutrient flow model unifies the results into a concept that may yield deeper insights into the narrative and simulation modelling of Maya social evolution.

Resumen en español

This chapter discusses past climate change drivers and ecological responses in southeastern Mexico. Ancient human influence on ecosystems is evident from sediment cores. Past human activities are evident in fossil records but make the interpretation of the past climatic signals more difficult. Conversely the human signal provides important evidence for understanding the level of human impact on the climate system and ecosystems. Four sediment cores at different locations of the Yucatán Peninsula were analyzed for fossil pollen and geochemistry. Human-induced ecological change was evaluated compared to climate-driven environmental change. Fossil pollen gave a clear signal of landscape and precipitation change in the Preclassic and Classic periods. The geochemical ratios provided evidence of local and regional hydrological change. The Chumpich Lake registry reveals that the management of low forests was efficient and indicates good hydrological control in the landscape. However this evidence is different in other sites from Yucatán Peninsula with deficient erosion control. Probably due to the differential climate response in the Chumpich–Uxul region, the drought was not as drastic as in other places.

Resumen en español

Mirar hacia atrás muestra el largo camino recorrido desde que, en los años treinta, Cyrus Longworth Lundell se topara con las sorprendentes ruinas de Calakmul en el corazón de la selva campechana, hasta que ese asombroso lugar fuera nombrado patrimonio mixto de la humanidad por la UNESCO, en 2014. William J. Folan, uno de los protagonistas de esta historia, nos comparte una síntesis del proceso.

Resumen en inglés

This interdisciplinary chapter investigates the forces behind the location and endurance of the Great City of Calakmul, the biogenic (human and natural) nucleus of a large agronomic system of cultural and biological forces during 1500 years. The architectural, ceramic, malacological, chemical, epigraphic, linguistic, demographic, pollen, paleoclimate, and physical–anthropological data involved in the development and decline of Calakmul and its region from earliest times to the tenth century AD are investigated. Geochemical measurements are correlated with ceramic frequencies internal to the city to demonstrate that high ceramic usage from the Late Preclassic onward corresponds to the deposition of potassium in the surrounding terrain that, being largely human in origins, witnesses a very dense population. Ceramic chemistry shows manufacture to be largely local. Folding in the epigraphic–linguistic evidence, this study demonstrates that the human population was responding to grander atmospheric (paleoclimatic) changes by migration as well as conforming to local geology and terrain. Mixed in with all of this, Calakmul interacted with other political units in the lowlands before surrendering its predominance to coastal communities such as Champoton (Cha kan putun) on the west coast of Campeche during the Postclassic.

Resumen en inglés

Spatially-explicit land cover land use change (LCLUC) models are becoming increasingly useful tools for historians and archaeologists. Such kinds of models have been developed and used by geographers, ecologists and land managers over the last few decades to carry out prospective scenarios. In this paper, we review historical models to compare them with prospective models, with the assumption that the ample experience gained in the development of models of prospective simulation can benefit the development of models having as their objective the simulation of changes that happened in the past. The review is divided into three sections: in the first section, we explain the functioning of contemporary LCLUC models; in the second section, we analyze historical LCLUC models; in the third section, we compare the former two types of models, and finally, we discuss the contributions to historical LCLUC models of contemporary LCLUC models.

Resumen en inglés

The objective of this chapter is to offer a short but comprehensive overview of the Yucatán Peninsula, its karstic landscapes and soil types. In this chapter, we will also provide insights regarding Maya nomenclature associated with these physical characteristics. We include information on the hydrology of the Yucatán Peninsula (principally geohydrology) and regional climatic patterns (ITCZ, the North Atlantic and teleconnections). From this point of reference, we will explain the peculiarities of the peninsula, including a brief description of the origins of its vegetation distribution. Following this, we will present a paleoenvironmental and historic framework with a cultural focus, together with information on the uses and management of the natural resources by the Maya while explaining modifications of their environment. We will then include an analysis on global change based on data from the IPCC (Intergovernamental Panel on Climate Change) related to drivers of climatic change in the region such as deforestation, forest fires, hurricanes and changes in sea level. We will explain how these factors have influenced the loss of biodiversity and contributed to global change.
