Swidden, also known as “slash and burn,” “long fallow,” and roça in Brazil, is a system of agriculture that involves clearing small areas within a forest, burning the slash (Figs. 1, 2, 3, and 4), and planting for 1–5 years (Figs. 5 and 6).The plot is then abandoned for 25– years – long enough for the forest to reclaim the cleared area.
