This study reconstructs the history of human use of natural resources in an upland area surrounding the indigenous Kichwa community of Sarayaku in the Ecuadorian Amazon. It concludes that hunting has affected, and continues affecting, basically the whole study area, but it is now more concen-trated in space than what it has probably ever been before. Also forest clearing has become more concentrated in space but, in addition, it has gone from affecting only hilltops forests to affecting alluvial plains as well as hilltops and, lately, also the slopes of the hills
