Produktbeschreibung
At the beginning of the 21st century, Antarctica is poised at the edge of a warmer and busier world. Leading Antarctic researchers examine the needs and challenges of Antarctic environmental management today and tomorrow. Through: (i) investigating the impacts of human activities on specific ecosystems and species, (ii) examining existing environmental management and monitoring practices in place in various regions and (iii) interrogating stakeholders, they address the following questions: What future will Business-As-Usual bring to the Antarctic environment? Will a Business-As-Usual future be compatible with the objectives set out under the Antarctic Treaty, especially its Protocol on Environmental Protection? What actions are necessary to bring about alternative futures for the next 50 years? This volume is an outcome of the International Polar Year (2007-2009) Oslo Science Conference (8-12, June, 2010).

Rezensionen
From the book reviews:

"Antarctic Futures, based on a session held during the Oslo Science Conference (Norway) in 2010, focuses on the impact of human activities and regional environmental change in the polar regions ... . Broad and thoughtful in its approach, this work is a noteworthy addition to the expanding canon of analyses of the human impact on and the future of Antarctica. Summing Up: Recommended. Upper-division undergraduates through professionals/practitioners." (H. Doss, Choice, Vol. 51 (11), August, 2014)

"Antarctic futures is a timely assessment on good authority which mostly succeeds in integrating the natural and social sciences in order to examine existing and alternative environmental practices. ... place Antarctic futures on the compulsory reading lists of all Antarctic scholars and their students - the future leaders in polar science and environmental management. This recommendation also extends to other actors and sectors." (Frigga Kruse, Polar Record, July, 2014)
