  • Perth III: Mountains of Our Future Earth — ALTER-Net: Europe's ecosystem research network
    Future Earth This is a contribution to the global Future Earth programme a 10 year international research initiative that will develop the knowledge for responding effectively to the risks and opportunities of global environmental change and supporting transformation towards global sustainability in the coming decades Mountain areas occupy 24 of the Earth s land surface they are home to 12 of the global population and another 14 of the population live in their immediate proximity Globally mountain areas are vital sources of water for agricultural industrial and domestic use They include major centres of biodiversity often coinciding with centres of cultural diversity where traditional ecological knowledge is maintained In an urbanising world mountain areas are key locations for tourism and recreation some include major urban areas Mountain systems are particularly fragile and subject to both natural and anthropogenic drivers of change These range from volcanic and seismic events and flooding to global climate change and the loss of vegetation and soils because of inappropriate agricultural and forestry practices and extractive industries Thus many mountain ecosystems are moving along trajectories that couple high rates of environmental change with strong economic changes The collective effect may be to alter the ability of these ecosystems to provide critical goods and services to both mountain and lowland populations The vital linkages between mountain and lowland systems are increasingly recognised in global and regional policy debates and action These diverse and inter related issues have been addressed in two international conferences organised by the Centre for Mountain Studies in Perth in 2005 and 2010 and provide the context for the 2015 conference Involvement of ALTER Net and LTER Europe Several sessions will be run by ALTER Net and LTER Europe members and relevant to anyone with an interest in long term ecosystem research Advances in
