After several years of research and preparation, Drs. Andrés Moreira (P. Univ. Católica, Chile) and Axel Borsdorf (Univ. of Innsbruck, Austria) have published an edited volume, entitled Chilean Biosphere Reserves – Laboratories for Sustainability, which includes conceptual and practical analyses of how to compatibilize human well-being and environmental conservation and provides descriptive case studies for the 10 biosphere reserves found in Chile. Dr. Christopher Anderson was invited to contribute the chapter on Cape Horn.
