ENSABELLA, Beatriz. The decline of the north Córdoba ecosystem and the limitations of the peasant economies. Mundo agr. [online]. 2008, vol.9, n.17, pp.00-00. ISSN 1515-5994.

The present work intends to make a diagnosis of the situation in the north Córdoba environment in general, and of the Río Seco, Tulumba and Sobremonte departments in particular, tracing the causes of the decline of the ecosystems involved. It is analyzed the ways of appropriation of the nature and the valorization of the natural resources that were made by societies through the time. The dominant political-economic model in a national scale had strong repercussions over the most important productive activities of the region, based on an extensive bovine and goat cattle-raising and the felling of the mount to obtain wood and charcoal. These activities traditionally developed by domestic units have been replaced today, in a big way, by the soya growing. The crisis of the productive modalities as well as the changes that took place on the temporary labor insertion, hardening the subsistence conditions of the regional families. The theoretical background is built from the dialog between the historicist perspectives and the new focus on geography, which offers a huge arc of aspects that tries to explain the present situation of a territory from the long process of human intervention, often painted by diverse irrationalities. This work has as an objective to show the unbreakable and irreducible relationship between society and nature. Moreover, the impoverishment by degradation of one carries the decline and hardening of the other's situation. In this case, the decline of the forests and ecosystems in general, parallel to the local economic crisis, puts the inhabitants of the Río Seco, Tulumba and Sobremonte departments of the north Córdoba on the margins of the system.
