Title: Mountainous landscape domestication. Management of non-cultivated productive areas in Sierra Nevada (Granada-Almeria, Spain)
Authors: Martín Civantos, José María
Issue Date: May-2014
Abstract: Sierra Nevada is a high mountainous landscape under anthropic influence since ancient times. Despite its characteristics, the main production trend has been intensive irrigation agriculture. However, the complexity of the resources management and utilization system includes not only water management but also an intensive cattle raising activity and land forest utilization, as well as mining exploitation. During the 8th century the major landscape transformation will be triggered by the arrival of the Arabs and Berbers, and it has kept its general layout thanks to the stability of the hydraulic systems.
La Sierra Nevada è un territorio montuoso che, sin dai tempi antichi, ha visto la presenza humana. Nonostante le sue caratteristiche, la principale produzione è stata l’agricoltura irrigua. Tuttavia, la complessità nella gestione delle risorse coinvolge non solo il sistema irriguo, ma anche l’allevamento intensivo, lo sfruttamento dell’incolto e quello minerario. Durante l’VIII secolo, la più grande trasformazione è stata causata dall’arrivo di Arabi e dei Berberi, e la persistenza del sistema si deve alla stabilità dei sistemi idraulici.
