Abstract: 

Areas of high ecological value, i.e. parks and protected areas as well as urban parks, experience ever increasing pressures from recreation and tourism. In addition, new technologies make remote areas increasingly accessible. This leads to extensive ecological impacts, and to increasing conflicts between user groups. In order to manage protected areas within acceptable ecological and social carrying capacities, one needs to monitor visitor activities and behaviour, and deepen the understanding of expectations and motivations. The conference proceedings focus on a discussion of efficient and cost-effective monitoring and recording methods, and associated analysis. Additionally, impacts on nature caused by leisure activities are described, and new research results on recreation, as well as new visitor management tools are presented. This book is designed to aid in their everyday work both practicioners and researchers who are engaged in park planning and administration, as well as in research projects.
