STOESSEL, Luciana  e  MARTINEZ, Gustavo. The process of intensification in the eastern pampean-patagonian transition: Discussion and comparative perspectives. Comechingonia [online]. 2014, vol.18, n.2, pp.65-94. ISSN 1851-0027.

Since about 15 years ago the concept of intensification has been used and explored in several regions of Argentina (e.g., NOA, COA, NE, Pampa, Fuego-Patagonia). This paper summarized how the concept has been conceived and applied in the discipline according to different theoretical and methodological frameworks. As a case study we present the data and results obtained from the lower course of the Colorado River, in the Eastern Pampa-Patagonia transition, in which the intensification process has been discussed. The evaluation of this process has been uneven in neighboring areas and sub-regions. A summary of the state of the art of the application and proposed models regarding the intensification process for the Humid Pampa (Interserrana and South areas), Dry Pampas and North- eastern Patagonia is presented. It is concluded that the process of intensification and its discussion remained active on research agendas through time. In this sense, it is observed the existence of a concern about the application of useful and sensitive methodologies in order to discuss this process and its impact on the characterization of local and regional subsistence patterns. Finally, the analysis of the intensification process has not only been focused on subsistence and economic aspects, but on the relationship among the latter, as well as with the environmental, socio-demographic and historical backgrounds of the Late Holocene hunter-gatherers.
