Also during the Modern Age, particularly in the flat areas of Europe, a progressive increase of agricultural activities throughout the reduction of the forest and swamp areas was observed (Paletto et al. 2008). A similar process was described by Magalhães (1970) in Portugal mainland, with a close relationship between deforestation and erosion, due to the feed needs of human population. Thus, deforestation and demography run in parallel in both direct and indirect ways. In our case, the evolution of demography in the mainland suffered several fluctuations and only from 1636 onwards a consistent demographic boom was verified until the present.
