It also discusses the significance of the Uruguay River as a permeable frontier, a place of circulation for merchandise, people, and ideas in the border zone between Brazil, Argentina, and Uruguay. Finally, it discusses the profound socio-environmental transformations that took place in the Uruguay  River  basin  over  the  nineteenth  and  twentieth  centuries  and the attempts to preserve and restore regional environments and landscapes linked to the river.
