About this book

Mediterranean Mountain Environments places its emphasis on physical geography while still adopting an integrated approach to the whole subject area. The book draws examples from a wide range of environments, demonstrating the interaction between human and physical processes responsible for shaping mountain areas. Risks and conflicts, as well as methods and tools for the conservation and management of both the natural and cultural environment are covered in the light of future challenges for the sustainable development of the Mediterranean mountains.

Media reviews

"The diversity of contributions is well organized, making Mediterranean Mountain Environments useful also as textbook, as it is presenting general concepts and detailed case-studies at the time."
Ethology Ecology & Evolution, 1 May 2013

"This framework could be a useful starting point for a future edition of this book, which could truly be a textbook with chapters on both physical and human geography, drawing together all of the knowledge deriving from research in the mountains of all of the countries of the region, including Algeria, Cyprus, Lebanon, Turkey, and the countries of the West Balkans, which rarely feature in this book."
Mountain Research and Development, 1 August 2013

"It will provide ideal reading for students, perhaps as the textbook for a field course."
Frontiers of Biogeography, 1 December 2012
