Man-made altitudinal belts in the mountains - the result of plain- mountain interactions.

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

In Allan's article, 'Accessibility and altitudinal zonation models of mountains', a model is presented that expresses the complex of relationships between mountains and plains, with an emphasis on their accessibility. The accessibility between these two physical units has in the past generation led to many changes in mountainous regions. Although Allan's conclusion that the changes are functionally related to the degree of accessibility between mountain and lowland areas is acceptable, it does not go far enough. Emphasis should also be placed on the fact that this is principally a unidirectional penetration, from the plain to the mountain, and that it creates the changes on the mountain. -Author
