Der richtige Umgang mit dem Seil und der übrigen Ausrüstung ist Grundvoraussetzung für die Sicherheit eines jeden Kletterers und Bergsteigers. Die handliche Lehrschrift »Alpine Seiltechnik« beinhaltet alles, was Einsteiger über technisches Rüstzeug wissen müssen, um erste Schritte antreten zu können – sei es in der Kletterhalle, im Klettergarten oder im Fels und Eis des Hochgebirges. Und auch Fortgeschrittene erhalten in diesem Band das notwendige Fachwissen, um längere und ernstere Klettereien und Eistouren am Berg in Angriff nehmen zu können. Der Autor Pit Schubert, ist ehemaliger Leiter des Sicherheitskreises im Deutschen Alpenverein und langjähriger Präsident der Sicherheitskommission der UIAA (Union Internationale des Associations d’Alpinisme). Er gilt weltweit als anerkannter Experte in Fragen alpiner Ausrüstung und Sicherheit. Schubert erläutert in diesem Buch alle Themenbereiche alpiner Sicherungstechnik, die der Kletterer und Bergsteiger an technischem Wissen braucht, um den Fels im IV. Schwierigkeitsgrad zu beherrschen sowie Firn- und Eiswände bis zu einer Steilheit von etwa 50 Grad zu meistern. Schwerpunkte bilden dabei neben der Handhabung des Seiles natürlich Abseiltechnik und Spaltenbergung sowie der richtige Einsatz von Steigeisen, Eispickel und Eisschrauben. Mit diesem Wissen können die ersten selbständigen Klettereien und Bergtouren sicher und gekonnt angetreten werden. Für die zwölfte Auflage wurde der Band »Alpine Seiltechnik« sorgfältig überarbeitet und mit neuen Bildern und Grafiken ausgestattet.

Generations of plant scientists have been fascinated by alpine plant life - with the exposure of organisms to dramatic climatic gradients over a very short distance. This comprehensive text treats a wide range of topics: alpine climate and soils, plant distribution and the treeline phenomenon, physiological ecology of water-, nutritional- and carbon relations of alpine plants, plant stress and plant development, biomass production, and aspects of human impacts on alpine vegetation. Geographically the book covers all parts of the world including the tropics.This second edition of Alpine Plant Life gives new references, new diagrams, and extensively revised chapters.

The United Nations Conference on the Environment and Development (UNCED), held in Rio de Janeiro in 1992, spawned a multitude of pro grammes aimed at assessing, managing and conserving the earth's biological diversity. One important issue addressed at the conference was the mountain environment. A specific feature of high mountains is the so-called alpine zone, i. e. the treeless regions at the uppermost reaches. Though covering only a very small proportion of the land surface, the alpine zone contains a rela tively large number of plants, animals, fungi and microbes which are specifi cally adapted to cold environments. This zone contributes fundamentally to the planet's biodiversity and provides many resources for mountain dwelling as well as lowland people. However, rapid and largely man-made changes are affecting mountain ecosystems, such as soil erosion, losses of habitat and genetic diversity, and climate change, all of which have to be addressed. As stated in the European Community Biodiversity Strategy, "the global scale of biodiversity reduction or losses and the interdependence of different species and ecosystems across national borders demands concerted international action". Managing biodiversity in a rational and sustainable way needs basic knowledge on its qualitative and quantitative aspects at local, regional and global scales. This is particularly true for mountains, which are distributed throughout the world and are indeed hot spots of biodiversity in absolute terms as well as relative to the surrounding lowlands.

Plants growing in tropical alpine environments (at altitudes above the closed canopy forest and below the limit of plant life) have evolved distinct forms to cope with a hostile environment characterized by cold, drought and fire. Unlike temperate alpine environments, where there are distinct seasons of favourable and unfavourable conditions for growth, tropical alpine habitats present summer conditions every day and winter conditions every night. Using examples from all over the tropics, this fascinating account reviews, for the first time, the unique form and functional relationships of tropical alpine plants examining both their physiological ecology and population biology. It will appeal to anyone interested in tropical vegetation and plant physiological adaptations to hostile environment, as well as to researchers in biogeography and ecology.

This is a study of how the first Turbo Grand Prix car came to be a reality, from the first ideas to the final ultimate success of a Grand Prix victory. Includes the history of each company involved, the reasons for the creation of the first Turbo-charged Grand Prix car. The book covers the development of an experimental car by Alpine in the 1960's. Of the men who worked with Gordini the engine tuning genius and who went on to create a power unit that changed the worlds thinking on engine design. Then Renault designed and built its Grand Prix car to the specific Formula 1 regulations. It goes on to cover the full story of the period of the Renault Turbo Grand Prix cars.

Closter and Alpine are situated on the slopes of the Palisades cliffs, tucked into the northeastern corner of New Jersey. Rising some five hundred feet above the Hudson River, the peaks of these cliffs offer some of the most spectacular scenery in the state. On these slopes the earliest pre-Revolutionary settlements were established and nineteenth- and twentieth-century mansions were built. Closter and Alpine includes the region's earliest history, beginning with "Wooly," the ten-thousand-year-old long-haired mastodon discovered in 1974. The 1776 British invasion led by Lord Cornwallis and the cruel murder of ninety-year-old Douwe Tallman were early local events of the Revolutionary War. During the nineteenth century, the freed slave community of Skunk Hollow was founded, a community to which present Closter residents can trace roots. One of the most unique parts of the history of Closter and Alpine are the "Houses like Fords," the "assembly-line" homes built by the Lustron Corporation during the post-World War II housing shortage. Closter and Alpine have the only two of these houses remaining in Bergen County.

* For climbers who know the basics and are ready to venture at higher altitudes* Written by longtime guides and climbing instructors certified by the American Mountain Guide Association (AMGA)* Teaches situational thinking and learning as well as techniqueThis intermediate-level guide addresses tools, skills, and techniques used in alpine terrain including rock, snow, ice, and glaciers at moderate altitude - approximately 5000 meters (16,000 feet) and lower. The technical protection systems are covered, of course. But 30 years of alpine climbing experience has convinced the authors that mastery - and safety - lie in the far more difficult task of knowing exactly which techniques to use, where and when. Therefore, they teach step-by-step decision-making skills, providing scenarios, checklists, and self-posed questions to inform the decision process. Alpine Climbing assumes some prior knowledge, primarily in rock climbing skills and techniques. Basic knots, belaying,rappelling, building rock anchors, leading, placing rock protection, and movement skills on rock: variations of these skills that are of particular value in the alpine environment are addressed in this book.

"Alpine was born a railroad town, but long before the whistle of the steam locomotive broke the silence of Alpine Valley, the nearby spring was a favored campground for prehistoric nomads and later for Spanish explorers and freighters along the ChihuahuaTrail. When the Southern Pacific unfurled its line down from Paisano Pass in 1882, landowner Thomas Murphy saw opportunity and platted the town. In 1887, Alpine was chosen as the county seat, and with the opening of Sul Ross Normal College in 1920, the town became the academic hub of the region. Following a decade of prosperity, the Great Depression and recurrent droughts triggered a slow decline. But since the early 1990s, Alpine has enjoyed a surge in regional art and culture, allowing it to reclaim its former glory as a proud little cosmopolitan cowtown perched at the top of the Texas Big Bend"--Provided by publisher.
