    • A transnational perspective of global and regional ecosystem service flows from and to mountain regions 

      Schirpke U; Tasser E; Tappeiner U (2019)
      The spatial relationships of ecosystem services are complex and poorly understood due to spatial mismatches between areas of provision and the areas that benefit. In this study, we assess the spatial flows of six key ...
    • Upscaling ecosystem service maps to administrative levels: beyond scale mismatches 

      Zen M; Candiago S; Schirpke U; Egarter Vigl L; Giupponi C (2019)
      As Ecosystem Services (ES) are the products of complex socio–ecological systems, their mapping requires a deep understanding of the spatial relationships and pattern that underpin ES provision. Upscaling ES maps is often ...
    • Using a new PDP modelling approach for land-use and land cover change predictions: A case study in the Stubai Valley (Central Alps) 

      Fondevilla C; Àngels Colomer M; Fillat F; Tappeiner U (2016)
      Due to the progressive forest expansion in European mountain areas triggered by agricultural abandonment, semi-natural meadows and pastures of great ecological and aesthetic value are disappearing. The aim of this study ...
    • Using conjoint analysis to gain deeper insights into aesthetic landscape preferences 

      Schirpke U; Tappeiner G; Tasser E; Tappeiner U (2019)
      Enjoyable landscapes are important resources for recreational activities and the socio-economic development of tourism destinations. A profound understanding of landscape preferences can support landscape management and ...

    • Using land use/land cover trajectories to uncover ecosystem service patterns across the Alps 

      Egarter Vigl L; Tasser E; Schirpke U; Tappeiner U (2017)
      Managing multiple ecosystem services (ES) in agricultural landscapes is a challenging task, especially in regions with complex topographical and agro-ecological conditions. These challenges require ES assessment approaches ...
