Mountain Research and Development Vol 37, No 2 available online and open access

MRD 37 2 641x841pxArticles in MRD often relate to the climate change debate at the core of the IPCC process currently gearing up for the 6th Assessment Report. Two papers in this open issue offer contrasting positions: one is critical and advocates a stronger local perspective (on mismanagement of irrigation water and landslips in Pakistan), the other uses the global perspective to discover patterns (in a review of climate change impacts on ecosystem services). Other papers deal with maize diversity and poverty reduction in Guatemala, offer a new approach to assessing tap water recharge in Japan, present a method for measuring bark biomass in Nepal, and assess the habitat ecology of a profitable but endemic resource in Tibet.
