Call for papers: Mountain Biodiversity and Sustainable Development

Mountain biodiversity provides billions of upland and lowland inhabitants with vital ecosystem services and sources of livelihoods. Mountain Research and Development is looking for papers that present validated insights into ways of managing mountain (agro)biodiversity so that it contributes to human wellbeing; that analyze interlinkages between mountain biodiversity, global change, ecosystems, and people; or that offer evidence-informed agendas for research or policymaking with regard to these interlinkages.

The Spatial and Economic Transformation of Mountain Regions - Landscapes as Commodities

Mountain regions are subject to a unique set of economic pressures: they act as collective enterprises which have to valorize rare resources, such as spectacular landscapes. While primarily rural in nature, they often border large cities, and the development of industries such as hydroelectric power and the rapid development of tourism can bring about sweeping socio-economic change and vast demographic alterations. The Spatial and Economic Transformation of Mountain Regions describes the socio-economic changes and spatial impacts of the last four decades, with the transformation of mountain areas held up as an example. Much of the real-world context draws on the Alps, spanning as they do the significant economies of France, Italy, Germany, Switzerland, and Austria. Chapters address academic discourse on regional development in these mountain areas and suggest alternative approaches to the liberal-productivist societal model. This book will be essential reading for professionals, institutions, and NGOs searching for counter-models to the existing marketing approaches for peripheral areas. It will also be of interest to students of regional development, economic geography, environmental studies, and industrial economics.

Stadtplanung in den Alpen

Viele beliebte Gebirgsorte entwickeln sich seit Jahrzehnten weitgehend unkontrolliert durch Multiplikation archetypischer Chalets. Damit geht zumeist die Erschließung durch den privaten Autoverkehr einher. Um die umgebenden Tourismus- und Naturgebiete vor weiterer Zersiedelung zu schützen, untersucht die Autorin so unterschiedliche Ortsstrukturen wie Andermatt, Avoriaz, Verbier und Zermatt sowie Whistler-Blackomb in Kanada. Aus detaillierten grafischen Analysen entwickelt sie wegweisende Strategien zur städtebaulichen Verdichtung und zu einer angepassten Mobilität, die sich auf andere Tourismusregionen übertragen lassen.
