Even though much of the soil eroded from hillslopes can be redeposited in colluvial or floodplain environments ( 24, 28 ), the transfer of sediment to colluvial foot slopes and alluvial valley bottoms can eventually take agricultural uplands out of production, entombing once-productive soils in smaller cultivatable areas, such as occurred on the South Pacific island of Mangaia, where violent conflict over access to arable soils sequestered in localized depositional areas erupted after ancient upland Polynesian agriculture stripped the soil off most of the island ( 29 ).
