From: Hunters and hunting across indigenous and colonist communities at the forest-agriculture interface: an ethnozoological study from the Peruvian Amazon

Scientific Name Common Name (Spanish) Total Indv./Month (Harvest Rate H)b Proposed Sustainable Harvest Rate (H) by Robinson and Redford (1991)

  1. aHarvest Rate (H) is estimated as the number of individuals. /km2/year
  2. bThe aggregated area for each type of community was: Indigenous= 39 km2, River-based= 45km2, Land-based= 125km2
