NAZCA, PERU (RECENT) (REUTERS) AERIAL VIEW OF AREA AERIAL VIEW OF TRUCK DRIVING ON ROAD HUMMINGBIRD IMAGE IN DESERT MONKEY IMAGE IN DESERT GENERAL VIEW OF DESERT HUARANGO TREE IN DESERT CAMBRIDGE, ENGLAND, UK (RECENT) (REUTERS) ARCHAEOLOGIST DAVID BERESFORD-JONES WORKING AT DESK BERESFORD-JONES TYPING SOUNDBITE (English) ARCHAEOLOGIST DAVID BERESFORD-JONES SAYING: "If you have insufficient protection from these trees, then you get river down-cutting into its floodplain which narrows the floodplain. Your irrigation systems are left high and dry and, in turn, you are exposed to wind erosion because this is one of the windiest places on earth and that's precisely what we see in the lower Ica valley". NAZCA, PERU (RECENT) (REUTERS) HUMAN SKULL FROM NAZCA PERIOD NEXT TO HUARANGO TREE VARIOUS OF INVESTIGATOR AND ASSISTANT ENTERING HUARANGO FOREST REMAINS OF HUARANGO USED FOR FIREWOOD VARIOUS OF ANCIENT CITY OF CAHUACHI, CEREMONIAL CENTER OF NAZCA CIVILIZATION VARIOUS OF SKULLS AND PORCELAIN REMAINS FROM NAZCA (SOUNDBITE) (Spanish) HISTORIAN JOSUE LANCHO SAYING: "The Nazca throughout history lived with the huarango. The huarango was the cornerstone." VARIOUS OF CEREMONIAL AREA 'ESTAQUERIA' (SOUNDBITE) (Spanish) HISTORIAN JOSUE LANCHO SAYING: "No huarango forest, no matter how interlocked the roots were, could have stopped a flood of large proportions carrying a load of potential energy and sweeping away Cahuachi. The kinetic energy was (too much). We can see the remains of the flood deposited in the valleys below Cahuachi." CAMBRIDGE, ENGLAND, UK (RECENT) (REUTERS) SOUNDBITE (English) ARCHAEOLOGIST DAVID BERESFORD-JONES SAYING: "We do have good evidence on the ground for that mega-el Nino but all our other lines of data indicated something rather more subtle perhaps, going on in the background and that was the gradual removal by humans of the woodland of the so-called riparian ecology in these basins, particularly this tree, the huarango" GENERAL VIEW OF HUARANGO TREE CLOSE UP OF TRUNK AND ROOTS OF HUARANGO STAND OF HUARANGOS AT NIGHTFALL
