Only two other apparently isolated populations of this cerrado-specialist woodcreeper (all belonging to the "bivittatus" group) are known for Amazonia: (1) Surinam, and (2) Brazilian states of Amapa and Pardi, where it occurs on both banks of the lower Amazon River Valley between Santarrm and Marajo Island

For those engaged in research in the tropical lowlands of South America, Rostain's book is no doubt a worthy addition to specialist libraries, to be placed either alongside classic works on pre-Columbian agricultural engineering, or among archaeological studies of the Orinoco, the Guianas and Marajo Island
In the flooded areas of the Amazon periphery--the Baures region of Bolivia, and on Marajo island, located at the estuary of the Amazon river (Figure 1)--Steward and Meggers supposed the undeniable signs of social complexity to have resulted from migration from the Andean highlands.

In a polemical conclusion, Brochado proposes that the mound-building societies which settled in Marajo Island in the 4th-13th centuries AD were ancestors of the Tupinamba.
In his master's thesis (1980), Brochado presents a model of intensive cultivation of seed- and root-crops able to support the mound-building societies of eastern Marajo Island over several hundred years.
For instance, in a reinterpretation of the Marajo Island sequence (Meggers & Danon 1988), it has been suggested that gaps between the latest TL date for the Mangueiras phase (2870[+ or -]190) and the earliest available TL date for the Formiga phase (1940[+ or -]230) that could be correlated with an arid interval, inferred from pollen data from Marajo and elsewhere from c.
Roosevelt's work on the earth mounds of Marajo Island (1991a) re-evaluated Meggers & Evans's (1957) sequence of the Marajoara phase with geophysical remote sensing and - for the first time in the Brazilian Amazon - recovery of microbotanical remains.
Along the Para State shore, not far from Marajo Island, and in many areas of southern Brazil, hundreds of shell-mounds have been identified and some excavated (Prous 1992: 199-265).
