                                                      WASHINGTON -- Images from space are providing scientists with new clues about the mysterious collapse of the Mayan civilization of Central America and some hints about the fates of other ancient civilizations that tried, and failed, to manipulate their environments with massive public works projects.

Analyses of satellite images by NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center and others suggest that, at least in the PetÚn region of northern Guatemala, the Maya made major ecological mistakes. Those, in turn, led to the collapse of what, around 800 A.D., was one of the most densely populated regions of the New World.

"By about 900 A.D., these people had all but disappeared, and we think we're beginning to understand why," NASA archaeologist Tom Sever told the World Archaeological Congress in Washington.

I wonder just how often races have become desimated through over population and deforestation . I mean it apparently happened on Easter Island as well . I just hope that we have or will learn from these mistakes.
