O desmatamento acelerado, as queimadas, a exploração predatória de madeira e a proliferação dos garimpos de ouro exerciam grande pressão ambiental e social sobre a região. Nessa época, o ecólogo norte-americano Christopher Uhl, então pesquisador visitante da Embrapa, realizava pesquisas sobre as áreas degradadas no leste do Pará e preocupava-se com o pouco entendimento e a escassa documentação dessas transformações na paisagem Amazônica.

Nous sommes convaincus qu’une des réponses à cette situation est de faire revenir ces personnes dans le circuit économique.
