Abstract

Robert West's cultural geography of the Modern Tarascan Area, 1948, documented the cultural and physical geography of the Sierra Tarasa (Purépecha). A selection of landscape photographs from this work, and from some of his subsequent trips to the region, serve as a baseline for documenting landscape change over the last 50 years. AA. find that there has been significant urbanization, but also forest regrowth, especially of urban forests that are wither shrubby or selectively cut. - (SLD)
