A large part of the results presented here has been generated by the project "Ecological Prospective for Latin America" (EPLA) supported by the United Nations University, the International Development Research Centre of Canada, and the National Council for Science and Technology of Argentina GallopÍn, (Gómez and Winograd, 1989). This project is a component of the wider international project "Technological Prospective for Latin America." We wish to acknowledge the collaboration of Miguel Gross, who developed the digitizing, processing, and printing software for the production of the maps, the valuable suggestions and criticisms generously provided by Isabel (Gómez and Anahi Perez, and the collaboration of Alejandro Dezzotti in the digitizing, of part of the cartographic information.
