This volume is intended as a collection of research papers that together survey some of the general trends in the interactions between humans and the Neotropical fauna throughout the late Quaternary as well as those in the taphonomic processes characterising the resulting archaeofaunal record, and their relation to the biogeographic features of the region. The general idea underlying the volume project is that understanding these relationships at such a broad scale may turn out to be a powerful tool for taphonomic and zooarchaeological research, and help account for some of this biogeographic region?s particularities with regard to others (see for example, Munoz and Mondini, accepted for publication). Hence, the volume is aimed at dealing with the specific aspects of zooarchaeology and taphonomy in the Neotropics and the problems shared by these investigations from the perspective of the general properties of the macroregion.
