eco.mont - Journal on Protected Mountain Areas Research and Management, Vol. 8 No. 1
This edition of eco.mont covers studies from protected mountain areas in the Alps, Romania, Turkey, China and Africa.
The articles of this issue deal with human perceptions on landscapes, indigenous ecological knowledge, conservation con icts, backpacker tourism, effects of climate change, local development and sci- enti c councils, thus mirroring the wide variety of in uence people have on pro- tected areas. Protected areas only work well if the management and the people living around them work together effectively and if decision-making is a joint process.
