Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Ten papers from a November 1992 conference in Sec, Czechoslovakia, and five more to round out the coverage, explore some of the problems peculiar to using geographical information systems for three-dimensional mountain environments, which are becoming increasingly important for the use and conservation of natural resources and as harbingers of environmental change. They discuss regional resource inventory and planning, the evaluation of natural hazards, research and resource management in and around protected areas, and the simulation and prediction of vegetation and climate change.
