La Parguera Nature Reserve, located in Lajas, stands out for its ample diversity in natural resources with great ecological value. Being, in its origins, a settlement devoted to fishing, the marine areas of La Parguera would provide the fruits of the sea to local consumers and the market at large. Today, La Parguera hosts a wide variety of economic, touristic, recreational and academic activities. The combination of the activities realized within this ecosystem also generates a constant impact to the living resources. By virtue of La Parguera’s being a landscape in which various habitats sheltering ecological and commercially important species are faced with human activities, it is imperative that the social and ecologic systems contained in La Parguera (of which humans are the central piece) be evaluated. This evaluation is the focus of the publication titled People, Habitats, Species and Governance: An Assessment of the Socio-Ecologic System of La Parguera, Puerto Rico.

Surfing Sociology in Rincón
Surfing Sociology in Rincón

For many, surfing is just a sport, but for others, it is a lifestyle. This phenomenon has impacted society, economy, apparel and even the way people talk. Surfing arrived to Puerto Rico a few decades ago, and it has changed from a hobby for ‘just a few people’, into a far-reaching enterprise that moves large sums of money. The Puerto Rican municipality of Rincón is living proof of this. The authors of Grommets, Locals, Boyz and Girlz: Surfing Sociology in Rincón become immersed in the world of big waves and analyze their impact. They catch the social, economic and cultural wave mixed in with the regular waves and boards, and offer a perspective that is both academic and refreshing.
