  1. 1. The ‘State of the Art’ ofGlobal Change Research in Mountains An analysis of the 433 accepted abstracts Global Change and the World’s Mountains Perth – Scotland – 26-30 September 2010
  2. 2. Geographical Distribution : Number of abstracts per region Geographical Distribution 194 Europe: North Asia: 82 America: 67 Africa: 20 Latin America: 45 Pacific: 5 1% 5% 15% 19% Africa AsiaGlobal: 20 10% Europe 5% Global Latin America 45% North America Pacific
  3. 3. Social Systems Ecological Systems Population Socio/Economic Resource Use Ecosystem Decision Making Biochemistry Services structure & BiodiversityPolitical/Institutional Water regimes Management Air Culture Soil Technology Global dynamics (environmental, socio-economic, political-insitutional) Land system dynamics Consequences of changes in mountains on global context
  4. 4. Number of papers by category 278 150 92 34 312
  5. 5. 22% of papers:Global environmental change ecological systems ecosystem interactions 3 10 28 Social Resource Ecological 10 41 Ecosystem Decision Services Making Use Systems & Systems Management 2 Africa Asia Europe Global Latin America North America
  6. 6. 16% of papers:Ecosystem interactions 1 2 9 14 4 Social Resource Ecological 1 Ecosystem Decision Services Making Use 37 Systems & Systems Management Africa Asia Europe Global Latin America North America Pacific
  7. 7. 9% of papers:Social systems: decision-making/institutions 4 12 6 3 Social Resource Ecological Ecosystem Decision Services Making Use 21 Systems & Systems Management Africa Asia Europe Global Latin America North America
  8. 8. 6% of papers:Global environmental change ecological systems ecosystem interactions andservices decision-making 6 5 Social Resource Ecological 5 Ecosystem Decision Services Making Use 10 Systems & Systems Management Asia Europe Latin America North America
  9. 9. Some initial conclusions• Drivers: greatest focus on global environmental change• Primary natural science emphasis: ecosystems andinteractions within them• Few papers on social systems consider global drivers• Quite a lot of papers on institutions/decision-making• Rather few papers focusing on resources/land use; moreon how changes in resources/land use drive environmentalchanges• Relatively few papers consider entire socio-ecologicalsystems/processes (driven by global change)• Systems > Target > Transformation knowledge Global Change and the World’s Mountains Perth – Scotland – 26-30 September 2010
