Redalyc 3.0 versión beta.
La versión estable de Redalyc 3.0 se libera en febrero de 2017. En la actualidad, se muestran los resultados de la marcación de artículos científicos mediante la herramienta gratuita Marcalyc, liberada en su primera versión el 1ro de septiembre de 2016 y que está pensada como un elemento central en la construcción y consolidación de un modelo de AA sustentable para Iberoamérica.
en: For several years now, national governments and international institutions have generated a set of strategies with the aim of reducing environmental problems by creating nature reserves. However, it is worth mentioning that under the conservation scenario, non-consensual actions do not resolve the environmental degradation due to the weakening of the social fabric necessary to start a process of sustain- able community development, and, as a result, conservation becomes illegitimate to the local population, which hardens positions and makes it difficult to search for joint solutions. The latter is what has been happening recently with the fishermen of the Port of San Felipe, Baja California, who on a couple of occasions have closed the highway between the city of Mexicali and the port, and has gone so far to close the international border between Mexicali and Calexico. This social unrest that threatens to escalate further is the result of the refusal of the San Felipe fishermen (and now the Gulf of Santa Clara in Sonora) to modify their fishing gear according to the new official standard (NOM-002-SAG / PESC-2013).>>>

en: Having estimations of the size of populations is critical to estimate universes of need, plan and evaluate interventions. Stigmatization and criminalization of drug use in Mexico makes pwid constitute a hard-to-reach population; however, they have a right to health and it is an obligation of the State to guarantee it, which includes designing effective actions to prevent aids . In Hermosillo, Sonora, the weight of hiv transmission via injecting drug use has gained prominence in the last decade; nevertheless, there are no estimations of pwid population size. In this paper we describe in detail how to build a mixed approach combining qualitative and quantitative techniques to estimate the population size of pwid in Hermosillo. We present recommendations to improve pwid registration systems in addiction treatment services and how to improve community harm reduction interventions in the city.>>>

en: The goal of this paper was to assess the pattern of species encompassing the present treescape of the city of Hermosillo. The period studied was 1992-2014, during which time the city experienced a prolonged hydrological drought lasting almost 13 years. This study sought to determine to what extent this water shortage influenced the adoption of drought-tolerant trees, especially native species. Data about the frequency and pattern of tree species was collected by sampling sidewalks and residential front yards. The study found that there were changes in the pattern of species comprising the present treescape. The Indian laurel ( Ficus nitida ) was a common and abundant tree in Hermosillo, but the study suggested that it was substituted by weeping fig ( Ficus benjamina ). Another species that became important was the black olive tree ( Bucida buceras ). Native species were more abundant in recently developed areas of the city, but not as much as black olive and weeping fig trees, which were the more abundant and well-distributed trees.>>>

en: This paper aims to explain the socio-economic development process experienced in the central region of Michoacan, Mexico, an area between the temperate lands in the vicinity of Uruapan and the lowlands to the south of this city, using the water potential of the Cupatitzio River. The hypothesis is that this resource could only have been used thanks to the concurrence of three elements: i) the Second Industrial Revolution technology brought to the region; ii) private initiative, which expanded the agricultural frontier to the south, and iii) postrevolutionary government’s public plans, through which the benefits of growth were distributed. The method used here is the historical reconstruction of events since the beginning of the 20th century until the 1960s, a period when these two regions were closely linked to form this area. The sources used were documents of that time and recent studies.>>>

en: This article suggests that the discussion of the values of modern heritage, in terms of architecture and urbanism, requires reviewing what happened with the founding of cities in the 19th century. The roots of modern planning are described by using both various types of projects for the establishment of settlements and examples of “military and civilian colonies”, with emphasis on northern Mexico. The text also explains why it is not possible to reject these realizations because of their small scale, since they were part of the enlightened 19th-century reflection on territorial planning and the modern city.>>>

en: From 1688 to 1752, the Compañía Volante de Campaña (roughly, “Flying Company”) was stationed in San Bartolomé, which at that time belonged to the province of Santa Bárbara in Nueva Vizcaya. For their sustenance, those troops were dependent on the local population, on goods delivered in advance by the Captain of the Compañía , who, in turn, relied on the trader who supplied merchandise to the military and, often, also on the governor himself who controlled trade. The Compañía was entrusted with the tasks of protecting roadways and combatting rebellious Indians; activities they could not conduct effectively without the help of Indian auxiliaries. The transfer of the Compañía to San Bartolomé contributed to consolidating local settlement. While the soldiers belonged to the poorer social classes, achieving the rank of Captain represented an outstanding route towards social mobility. Captains were regional military chiefs, and peace depended largely on their relations with still unsubdued Indians.>>>

en: The social imaginary has become a method of study of the image that establishes relationships between form and significance in search of the meaning, purpose and intention of the form represented by a group of individuals. That is why it is used as a methodological tool for creating a model that helps us to study some images that allude to Mexicanness. In this article “Mexicanness” is understood as a set of practices and architectural representations made and shared by the colony of foreign tourists established in a small city in northwestern Mexico.>>>

en: Since a couple of years ago public transportation systems are facing a crisis, as a result of a fall in the quality of the service, as well as a degradation or reduction of the fleet. As a consequence, some cities face serious problems because demand exceeds the capacity of such systems. One of the main obstacles to address this problem is the lack of information on mobility patterns of residents. Thus, the aim is to quantify the volume of travel and derive the demand for public transportation in Ciudad Obregon, Sonora, to provide basic data for its planning and provision. The methodology employs a Geographic Information System (gis), with secondary information in order to determine mobility needs based on family, its daily activities and accessibility to modes of public and private transportation.>>>

en: In the last decades medium-sized cities have recovered their importance in urban systems, both in the field of scientific literature and in territorial planning and development strategies at the international level. As in the 1960’s, these towns are gaining prominence as components of the regional development policies, being recognized as key actors in the stimulation of industrial possibilities for peripheral territories. Among the instruments aimed at promoting growth, the literature emphasizes the creation of institutional networks as an element capable of encouraging innovation and technological change. In this sense, it is argued that in the medium-sized cities that are more successful in the global economy, the existence of institutional thickness has been crucial to ensure territorial competitiveness. This paper analyzes how the institutional networks operate in a medium-sized town called Bahía Blanca in Argentina, trying to understand the way in which these organizations can improve the competitive conditions and development possibilities of this territory.>>>
