Advances in Asian Human-Environmental Research

Description

The Advances in Asian Human-Environmental Research series aims at fostering the discussion on the complex relationships between physical landscapes, natural resources, and their modification by human land use in various environments of Asia. It is widely acknowledged that human-environmental interactions become increasingly important in Area Studies and development research, taking into account regional differences as well as bio-physical, socio-economic and cultural particularities. The book series seeks to explore theoretic and conceptual reflection on dynamic human-environment systems applying advanced methodology and innovative research perspectives. The main themes of the series cover urban and rural landscapes in Asia. Examples include topics such as land and forest degradation, vulnerability and mitigation strategies, natural hazards and risk management concepts, environmental change, impact studies and consequences for local communities. The relevant themes of the series are mainly focused on geographical research perspectives of Area Studies, however there is scope for interdisciplinary contributions from various spheres within the natural sciences, social sciences and humanities. Key themes: Human-Environment Interaction - Asian regional studies - Asian geography - Impact studies - Landscape - Society - Land use and land cover change - Natural resources Submit a proposal: Proposals for the series will be considered by the Series Editor and International Editorial Board. An initial author/editor questionnaire and instructions for authors can be obtained from the Publisher, Dr. Robert K. Doe (robert.doe@springer.com).
