surface fires fires that typically burn only the forest's underbrush and do little damage to mature trees. These fires actually serve to protect the forest from more harmful fires by removing underbrush and dead materials that would burn quickly at high temperatures.
Tailings piles of gangue, which is the waste material that results from mining.
traditional subsistence agriculture when each family in a community grows crops for themselves and relies on animal and human labor to plant and harvest crops.
Terracing creatiug flat platforms in the hillside that provide a level planting surface, which reduces soil runoff from the slope.
