DOCUMENT Full-Text Kathryn Puseman. Linda Scott Cummings.

Forty tabular stone knives from Sites AZ U:2:73, AZ U:2:80, and AZ U:2:93 in the Lower Verde project area in central Arizona were washed for phytoliths and possible plant proteins. These knives were recovered from floors or roofs in processing areas at village sites and are believed to have been used to process agave. The phytolith washes were examined for the presence of agave raphids, and the protein residue washes were tested against agave antisera to detect prehistoric agave proteins.

DOCUMENT Full-Text Colleen Strawhacker.

Irrigation agriculture has been heralded as the solution to feeding the world’s growing population. To this end, irrigation agriculture is both extensifying and intensifying in arid regions across the world in an effort to create highly productive agricultural systems.

Surprisingly, little...
