A huge draw on the "2013 National Geographic Live" lecture series, the author shares the passion that led to her world record in mountaineering - First woman-and only the fourth climber ever-to summit all fourteen 8,000-meter peaks without supplemental oxygen or high-altitude porters - Though the two climbers are friends, Kaltenbrunner's path to high places has been very different from Edurne Pasaban's record-breaking feat - Positive, uplifting account of a remarkable athleteEffusive, charismatic, tough, Gerlinde Kaltenbrunner is one of the world's most successful high-altitude mountaineers and the first woman to climb all fourteen 8,000-meter peaks without supplemental oxygen-and she also eschews high-altitude porters. Mountains of My Heart covers her early years learning to climb in Austria, her personal life, her training as an oncology nurse, and her ever-present passion for mountains, especially the Himalaya. Her love of being in the mountains shines through in her writing: For Gerlinde the important thing was not the race to be the first woman to climb the 8,000-meter peaks, but rather to experience the mountains and climb them in her self-sufficient style. Self-sufficiency did not, however, mean climbing without her husband, Ralf Dujmovits; in 2009, Lhotse became her twelfth and his fourteenth 8,000-meter peak! Kaltenbrunner shares the challenges, dangers, and euphoria of her high-altitude climbs, detailing medical emergencies and her own feelings about being high in the mountains. Her writing is honest, captivating, and unrestrained.

Der Begriff des Schadens ist unumganglich, wenn es um mogliche negative Veranderungen der Umwelt geht. Er liegt auch jeder wissenschaftlichen und politischen Diskussion uber okologische Risiken zu Grunde. Gleichwohl ist der -okologische Schaden- in den Umweltwissenschaften, im Recht und im Gesetzesvollzug nicht einheitlich geklart. In diesem Band werden begriffliche, methodologische und ethische Aspekte okologischer Schaden erortert. Die Autorinnen und Autoren sind uberwiegend interdisziplinar Tatige aus den Bereichen Biologie, Chemie, Jura, Gentechnik, Landschaftsokologie, Okonomie und Philosophie. Sie diskutieren theoretische und praktische Grundlagenfragen der Begrifflichkeit, umweltokonomische Zugange der Erfassung okologischer Schaden, okologische Fallstudien aus Naturschutz, Kusten- und Hochwasserschutz und dem chemischen Pflanzenschutz sowie den Themenkomplex Gentechnik und okologische Schaden. Die Beitrage bieten ein facettenreiches Panorama des Stands der Debatte mit Vorschlagen zur Konzeption und zur Implementierung okologischer Schaden in verschiedenen gesellschaftlichen Kontexten."
