Environmental and climate change is affecting forests and land use in numerous ways, including increasing the risk of geomorphic hazards. Such hazards include surface erosion, desertification and related land degradation. Yet it is often difficult to distinguish between the influences of climate change from those of changing forest land use, on geomorphic hazards. This volume reviews current knowlege on these issues.

"This is a very useful volume which includes some material on climatic change impacts that have so far received rather sparse attention from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change."

A.S. Goudie - , Oxford

"This book is highly recommendable for anyone interested in climate-change related issues."
