Abstract: "The aim of this study is to review ecological-cultural aspects of Brazilian native populations that descend from Indian and Portuguese, from the Atlantic Forest coast (caicaras) and from the Amazon (caboclos). Following the definition by Berkes and Folke (1992), the objective is to analyze their cultural capital or the factors related to caicara and caboclo adaptations to the environment, including its modifications. These factors are reviewed in the light of ecological concepts, such as of resilience. Examples from the Atlantic Forest coast will be concentrated on the southern coast of Brazil, and from the Amazon, from the States of Acre, Amazon and Tocantins."
