Agricultural landscapes between intensification and abandonment: the expectations of the public in a Central-Alpine cross-border region
The aim of this study is to find out what locals and tourists in a Central-Alpine, multilingual cross-border region expect from an Alpine landscape, with a special focus on agriculture. Using a standardised questionnaire, ...
Down to future: Transplanted mountain meadows react with increasing phytomass or shifting species composition
Manipulative approaches under natural conditions are fundamental for understanding impacts of climate warming on grassland (agro-) ecosystems. In this paper we present 3 years of data from two simultaneously conducted ...
Identifying and mapping the tourists' perception of cultural ecosystem services: A case study from an Alpine region
Landscapes provide an array of services to society, from the provision of food and material, to the provision of cultural ecosystem services such as recreation, aesthetics or spirituality. Studies on cultural ecosystem ...

Ökosystemleistungen in den Alpen
Das Konzept der Ökosystemleistungen wird nicht nur in wissenschaftlichen Kreisen weltweit intensiv diskutiert, sondern entwickelt sich zunehmend zu einem natur- und umweltschutzpolitischen Instrument. Die Erfassung und ...
Exploring socio-cultural perceptions of ecosystem service categories: The influence of socio-demographic factors and landscape type
The socio-cultural assessment of ecosystem services has been proposed as a promising tool for eliciting people’s preferences towards ecosystem services. Despite an increasing integration of the socio-cultural perspective ...
Using conjoint analysis to gain deeper insights into aesthetic landscape preferences
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 ...
Water stress limits transpiration and growth of European larch up to the lower subalpine belt in an inner-alpine dry
* Climate change will further constrain water availability in dry inner‐alpine environments and affect water relations and growth conditions in mountain forests, including the widespread larch forests. * To estimate the ...
Influence of Land-Use Intensification on Vegetation C-Stocks in an Alpine Valley from 1865 to 2003
The role of ecosystems as carbon (C) sinks or sources is intrinsically related to land-use intensity, which determines the land required for biomass production. Here, we systematically investigate the role of different ...
