ISCAR-P: Alpine Protected Area Research


ISCAR and the Network of Protected Areas (ALPARC) joined in 2006 by establishing a common working group called ISCAR-P. This board provides scientific support to research activities within ALPARC, such as the four-yearly research symposium in National Park Hohe Tauern, the journal eco.mont and the database "Mountain Pool" on research projects. Periodically ISCAR Workshops are organised with partners.
