Another Copied Introduction

A direct copy of the introduction from one chapter recycled into another chapter.



"Mountain systems cover about one-fifth of the earth's continental areas and are all inhabited to a greater or lesser extent except for Antarctica. Mountains provide direct life support for close to 10% of the world's population, and indirectly to over half. Because of their great altitudinal range, mountains such as the Himalayas, the Rockies, the Andes, and the Alps, exhibit, within short
horizontal distances, climatic regimes which are similar to those of widely separated latitudinal belts; they consequently feature high biodiversity. Indeed, there is such a close link between mountain vegetation and climate that vegetation belt typology has been extensively used to define climatic zones and their altitudinal and latitudinal transitions (cf. for example Klötzli, 1984, 1991, 1994;
Ozenda, 1985; Quezel and Barbero, 1990; Rameau et al., 1993)."

And strangely - the later publication does not cite the earlier publication.
