Volume 12, Issue 2 (2014)

We are pleased to publish this issue of the journal (vol. 12/2), which features the debut of "Contemporary Debates", in which ideally, both sides of an issue in Amazonia are addressed through short essays. The first such "debate" discusses hydroelectric dams in Brazilian Amazonia and is edited and introduced by Dr. Simone Athayde. Another new category in this issue is a photo essay, featuring the work of Curt Nimuendajú on the Rio Negro. We encourage submissions in these new categories for future publications. An article on ecotourism in Ecuador and book reviews complete the issue.
