The first issue of the new journal "eco.mont - Journal of protected mountain areas research" has appeared.
The journal has been established on the initiative of the Alpine Network of Protected Areas (ALPARC), the International Scientific Committee for Alpine Research (ISCAR), the Austrian Academy of Sciences (ÖAW) and the University of Innsbruck.
eco.mont will focus on research and management issues in the protected areas of the Alps, but this will not be to the exclusion of other protected mountain areas in Europe or elsewhere in the world. For example one of the nine contributions deals with forest conservation in the Tropics, others focus on the Wienerwald Biosphere Reserve in Austria, long-term bio-monitoring of Alpine waters or examine question of how technical experts can be turned into multi-functional managers of protected areas.
The journal will be officially unveiled at the 4th Symposium for Research in Protected Areas to be held from 17th - 19th September 2009 at the Hohe Tauern National Park in Austria. Other fascinating contributions on research activities and results from protected areas in Europe are expected at the conference. Various excursions within the National Park will also be offered to tie in with the presentations.
