Book Description:
This new book presents topical research in the study of the Alpine environment with a focus on geology, ecology and conservation. Topics discussed include aquatic insects of remote Alpine lakes; the socio-economics of conservation in the Alps; the genetic diversity and population structure of Alpine plants endemic to the Tibetan plateau and climate change impacts on Alpine basins.
