Stocks (1983) suggested four reasons which motivate the planting of South American tropical forest swidden crops in concentric rings. His third proposal, that of protection from insect pests, is examined in the light of recent fieldwork with the Barí, and reformulated to suggest that protection from mammalian pests may be a more accurate explanation of the value of this type of field architecture.
