Combating Serious Threats to the Greater Chaco Landscape,Paul F. Reed
Even after more than 100 years of scrutiny and debate, Chaco still captivates archaeologists and the public like few other places in the Southwest. The Chaco World is still being studied at all scales and perspectives, and with new scientific and analytical methods. And in today’s era of expanding oil and gas exploration, the greater Chaco landscape is being defended by coalitions of descendant tribal groups, archaeologists, legislators, and other conservation-minded stakeholders.
