Thanks to contributions from several colleagues, the Online Bibliography on
Environmental History of Latin America has now well over 400 references, among articles, books, videos and WebPages in English, Spanish and Portuguese. The sources for these references include the Forest History Society's online bibliography (an absolutely incredible source), suggestions from H-ASEH and H-LATAM
subscribers, co-editors John Wirth (in memorian) and Josť Drummond, and bibliographic research in the academic journals such as the American Historical Review and Environmental History Review, besides a number of databases.
Most references have been double-checked with at least two sources to make sure they were
accurate and pertinent, though we have adopted a rather broad definition for environmental history.
We have included some (not many!) classic works by Crosby, Sauer, Buarque de Holanda, Ciro Cardoso. However we have focused rather on recent works (last 15 years), that would not be easily found in traditional bibliographies.
We have included short reviews for books and movies, whenever they were
available. In some cases, there is a link to the H-Net electronic reviews. If not stated otherwise, the comments were credited as followed:
The classification by bio-geographic region is only preliminary, and I am studying how to add
an search engine. The subdivisions, of course, overlap. Therefore an article on Peruvian Amazon is listed both in Andes and in Amazon. Articles on Chile are included in Cono Sur and
Andes. Mesoamerica includes Central America and Mexico, and also Colonial California and New Mexico.
