One direction 110W being taken tu reune it is 10 search for factors that!imit its applicability, Rublo (1973) has shown, for example, that clinlatc and pohtical structurc can be important co-determinants, along with population pressure, of peoplefland ratios in agricultural history. Our accunlulating knowledge of che eco!ogy of mountajns ante their endctnic halards suggests that, in chis selting, the effects of population pressure lnay Vary significantly from che predictions of the Roscrup mude!.
