Environmental impacts of ecotourism.

Book cover for Environmental impacts of ecotourism.


This book with 25 chapters considers the environmental impacts of particular activities, viz., hiking and camping, off road vehicles and recreational boats, as well as impacts specific to certain ecosystems, e.g., marine environments, polar coasts, and mountain environments. It incorporates reviews of better-studied impacts by well-known experts, case studies of recent research from countries such as Australia, Brazil, Canada, New Zealand, Russia and the USA, and less well-known issues.
