DE MARCHI MOYANO, Bianca. Protected Areas and International Borders of Bolivia from a Historical Perspective. Rev Cien Cult [online]. 2020, vol.24, n.44, pp. 217-246. ISSN 2077-3323.

The article investigates the relations between Bolivian national protected areas and its international borders. It proposes a review of historic and geographic data on the creation of protected areas that allows us to suggest a periodization of 4 historical stages. Analizing: 1) the nationalist conception of conservation, 2) its systematic biological study, 3) its integral environmental development and 4) its recent cross-border debate. The four periods expose clues about how the political and intellectual country's history intervenes on the creation of the protected areas located in the Bolivian border regions.

Palabras clave : Protected areas; International borders; Historical periodization; Society-Nature relationship; Bolivia.
