About this book

This book is the richly illustrated result of a major geographic project bringing together the expert knowledge of more than 130 authors from six Alpine countries on the nature and ecology, as well as the culture and economy of the Alpine rivers.

The landscapes of the Alps are largely influenced by their rivers – human use of the Alpine region is closely linked to the challenges of dealing with running waters. This book offers a vivid and comprehensive documentation of the manifold significance of Alpine rivers from different perspectives.

Thirty specialist chapters describe the origin and function of rivers, their ecological, social and economic significance in history and the present, the extent and consequences of human uses, as well as the need for reconciliation of protection and use interests. Portraits of more than fifty rivers provide a quick overview and present the particular characteristics.

The book provides a basis for discussions about the future of rivers in the Alpine region. The combination of rich illustration, maps and easy-to-understand descriptions makes it a unique reference work for readers interested in nature and the environment, professionals and not least for students and teachers.
