Agave Typologies of Richinbar, Pueblo la Plata, and Pueblo Pato Archaeological Sites of Agua Fria National Monument

Part of the Legacies on the Landscape project

Author(s): Todd Passick

Year: 2004

Summary

The purpose of this paper is to examine the agave surrounding three different pueblos located in the Agua Fria National Monument and to separate them into typologies which can then be compared to known species in the area to determine weather hyrbridiaztion had occurred. This analysis will help determine whether agaves on these three fields have been hybridized, either intentionally by early inhabitants, or by natural occurrences. This is done by placing the plants into groups based on typological similarities, which are then compared to the known species that are present in the Agua Fria area.
