This article provides new data and synthesizes earlier findings on the carbon isotope ratios of the humin part of soil organic matter from a range of sites in the central Maya Lowlands (ancient Maya wetland fields, upland karst wetlands, ancient Maya aguadas (reservoirs), and ancient Maya terraces). The results are providing a new line of evidence about local and regional soil and ecological change in this region of widespread environmental change in the Late Holocene
