Read this excerpt from a passage about Easter Island, an island in the South Pacific that once supported a complex civilization. Which type of evidence would support the author's thesis? Historians and scientists agree that the landscape of Easter Island was much different when the first islanders arrived from Polynesia in 800. The island was covered in lush forests of palm trees and was inhabited by large populations of birds. Less than 600 years later, the island was a barren wasteland of grasses. The ecosystem on Easter Island collapsed as a result of the reckless use of natural resources
