About this book

Landscapes and Landforms of Slovakia provides an attractive physiographical overview of the most prominent landscapes of Slovakia and the distinctive landforms associated with them. It describes the main driving factors leading to their evolution and importance for geoconservation and geotourism.

The richly illustrated book provides the reader with enjoyable and informative descriptions of the selected sites within their regional geographical and geological settings ranging from the Tatras Mts. with glacially shaped relief as the highest region in the Carpathians to caves and lowlands, taking into account fluvial, gravity-induced, karst and structural landscapes of Slovakia.

The book is organized into 3 parts: a) Introduction, which presents a general framework of the physical geography of Slovakia, b) Geomorphological landscapes, presenting papers dealing with key geomorphological areas, resp. landforms, c) Geoheritage and landscape protection, providing an updated vision on the geomorphological/geological heritage sites and landscape protection policy in Slovakia.

The book will be relevant to scientists, scholars and any readers interested in geomorphology, geology, physical geography, geoheritage, landscape tourism and environmental protection. It can be also used for undergraduate and graduate courses in Earth and environmental sciences.
