Using specialists or stakeholders to select indicators of environmental change for mountain areas in Scotland and Spain
AbstractA decision tree of possible indicators of environmental change (social, economic and ecological) was prepared for mountain areas in Spain and Scotland. Separate groups of specialists and stakeholders used the decision tree to identify key indicators for three different sizes of sample area in each country. There were many differences in the priority indicators selected by the two groups both within and between countries, reflecting a wide range of local issues and concerns. However, there were some indicators in common between stakeholders and specialists and also between Scotland and Spain.
