denizens of South America's Gran Chaco dry forest include several
species of armadillo, an important source of protein for the indigenous
hunter-gatherer populations who are dependent on the ecological
integrity of this vast, relatively little-known biome.
With the help of these
cartoons, "Tatureta" distills the results of Erika Cuéllar's MSc thesis
examining hunting impact on armadillo ecology and population
dynamics, in a format more amicable to the Isoseño hunters and their
families who participated in the orginal study.
