And by LIDAR overflights, Simon, which gave the topography really well.

I think we're dealing with colonisation, which can be rapid in the right 
circumstances, more than genetic evolution.     In recent years remains of 
ancient earthworks and villages have been found under what was thought to be 
primeval forest in the Amazon.  They seem to have died out about the time 
Europeans arrived, which fits in with the 400 year figure cited previously.  
Ironically much of this was uncovered by modern clearance.
