This thesis considers a conflict between 'colonos' and conservation in mid-twentieth Colombia. A model of frontier processes is used in an historical perspective to illuminate the geography of a socio-ecological invasion process. The documentary evidence is combined with evidence from personal fieldwork, catastral survey, census material and unpublished data from quasi-governmental organizations, to produce an interpretation of the current situation that differs greatly from that held by the bodies directly involved at the time.
