Beschreibung:

Tropical alpine ecosystems are unique and important areas that serve vital roles in the areas of hydrology, biodiversity and carbon storage, due to their unique set of climatic and topographic conditions. These areas are particularly vulnerable to climate change and fire as they exist in a fragile balance. Mount Kenya is one such area and it has experienced many fires over the past few years. This book explores the role of fire on the mountain and the impacts on soil properties. Satellite imagery is used to characterize the fire regime over the past 15 years, according to frequency and severity, and also to explore patterns of burning. The book examines the role of fire severity and other geographic properties in determining soil properties. This study is useful for park managers in their efforts to manage the Mount Kenya National Park, and also for those interested in global climate change and it's impact on these unique mountain ecosystems.
