Projects per year
Farm and Mountain was chosen to retrieve the most relevant scientific papers. A total of 545 papers were identified. The year with more publications was 2014 with 47 papers. During this timeframe, 20 peer reviewed scientific journals have published at least 5 papers related to MLF. Text mining analysis on the 547 available abstracts aimed at identifying the most frequent words used in these papers. Most of them were dealing with livestock management (e.g. sheep, cattle, transhumance, stocking density) and with landscape management (e.g. land, forest, grazing, water). Fewer papers were targeting socio-economic (e.g. livelihood quality and income) and environmental sustainability issues (e.g. climate change, biodiversity). The results of this exercise highlight a growing interest towards mountain farming related topics by the scientific community and reveal the need to build on current knowledge by engaging with new disciplines and expertise in order to strengthen the key role of MLF for the survival of agroecosystems and local communities.
