Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



The A. constructs a vegetation baseline for early 20th century southeastern Brazil using new empirical evidence. Analysis of land subdivision court proceedings and postmortem property inventories suggests a mosaic of semideciduous mesophytic forest, subtropical savanna and dense arboreal savanna. The findings support the claims of botanists and biogeographers regarding the relationship between vegetation communities and chemical-physical soil characteristics. The idea of a mosaic provides a basis for questioning the Atlantic Forest
