Abstract: "It is generally agreed that when genus Homo first appeared on earth, the greater part of the planet was covered with forests. At that time, man was a food-gatherer, living by hunting, fishing and gathering the plant materials he needed for survival. Then, he developed agriculture, learning to use fire, felling tools and simple farming implements which enabled him to clear forests and to cultivate systematically. This development, of course, moved at different rates in the various climatic zones of the world. In fact, still today, in the tropical forests of Latin America, Africa, and Asia, there are many who live at or near the aborigine level."
