520    This book aims to provide case studies and a general view 
       of the main processes involved in the ecosystem shifts 
       occurring in the high mountains, and to analyse the 
       implications for nature conservation. Although case 
       studies from the Pyrenees are preponderant, conclusions 
       are aimed at any mountain range surrounded by highly 
       populated lowland areas. The chapters give emphasis to 
       approaches from environmental geography, functional 
       ecology, biogeography, and paleoenvironmental 
       reconstructions. The introductory and closing chapters 
       summarize the main challenges that nature conservation may
       face in mountain areas under the environmental shifting 
       conditions. This interdisciplinary book will appeal to 
       researchers in mountain ecosystems, students and nature 
       professionals. This book is open access under a CC BY 
588 0  Online resource; title from PDF title page (SpringerLink,
