dc.description.abstractThe Santa Cruz River, in the vicinity of Tucson, Arizona, includes one of the oldest continuously inhabited sites in the United States. Changes in the physical landscape of the river and its floodplain, and in the social signification of the landscape, can be classified within four distinctive time periods: before 1890, between 1890 and 1920, between 1920 and 1974, and after 1974. Structuration theory and a landscape-as-text approach were employed to discover and interpret how the social framework, natural events and processes, and the landscape itself interacted ecologically to influence and change each other within each of the four identified time periods.
