Eco.mont special issue on 50 years MAB Programme is now available online

50 years ago in 1971, the UNESCO member states founded the MAB programme of UNESCO and is now celebrating its 50th anniversary worldwide with numerous events and activities.

To celebrate the anniversary the Austrian MAB National Committee decided to organise and finance a special issue on biosphere reserves in mountain regions in eco.mont – Journal for protected mountain areas research and management. The initiative was very successful: the 140-page special issue, whose cover also bears the official MAB-50 design, contains 16 articles. The editors of the Special Issue are Günter Köck (ÖAW), Valerie Braun (ÖAW | IGF) and Arne Arnberger (BOKU Vienna).
