Spanish term or phrase: antropológicos
Desde el punto de vista de la vegetación y de la flora, los vestigios actuales nos permiten aproximarnos a los paisajes paleontológicos, a los antropológicos de la época aborigen, a los potenciales de vegetación natural y a los paisajes de vegetación actual.

aproximarnos a los antropológicos de la época aborigen = explore/ gain an insight into the anthropology of the indigenous era/ gain an insight into what the indigenous people were like???? TIA for your help.

In other or, it's not about what the people were like; it's about what their landscapes were like and what that tells us about them.
