    Abstract

    A discussion on the article "Can Properties of Labor-Exchange Networks Explain the Resilience of Swidden Agriculture?," by Downey, published in the 2010 issue is presented. The article described the dynamical properties of labor-exchange networks that could maintain resilience of swidden agriculture in Belize. The author concludes that migrations have significant impact on natural resources governance, especially when linked with conflicting representations of social interactions.
