Beschreibung

This book is the latest and most comprehensive reference to the regional geography of Spain, taking into account emergent issues such as biodiversity, climate change and nationalism. It appeals to scientists as well as to students and instructors and all fields of geography, regional, environmental and cultural studies, and business related disciplines.

It covers the whole range of topics from the physical to the human geography of Spain and provides detailed insights into all 17 autonomous communities. Dozens of GIS maps and hundreds of photographs and images including remote sensing imagery make this volume a must have for every geography department.




Professor Francisco J. Tapiador lectures at the Department of Environmental Sciences and in the Architecture School of UCLM (Toledo, Spain). He graduated in Geography and History and holds a PhD in Physics. He has worked as professional geographer in large regional development projects, developing both guidelines and policies for regional and rural planning, and implementing geographical information and management systems. His research in rural issues spans from Climate Change to Historical GIS and Remote Sensing. His findings have been published in highly cited journals (Landscape and Urban Planning, Journal of Geography in Higher Education, Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society, Journal of Climate, Energy and Environmental Science, Political Geography, Geophysical Research Letters and International Journal of Remote Sensing, amongst others). He has been a visiting scholar at the universities of Barcelona (Spain), Cambridge (UK) The Sorbonne (Paris 7, France), Oklahoma University (USA), Caltech (USA) and Colorado State University (USA). He was the chief editor of the Journal of the Geographical Information System. He has also been the Dean of the Faculty of Environmental Sciences and Biochemistry at UCLM.
