Global Environmental Change in Alpine Regions
Edited by Karl Steininger () and
in Books from Edward Elgar Publishing
Mountain regions represent about one fourth of the earth’s surface area and provide a significant share of goods and services to humanity. In this book, the authors demonstrate how alpine environments throughout the world are particularly vulnerable to global environmental change. Alpine populations will often be affected earliest and most significantly, for example through extreme weather systems, and their scope for adaptation is relatively limited. Drawing on the natural and social sciences, particularly economics, this book supplies a broad picture of the diverse issues involved.
