Welcome from the Editor
Welcome to the RGS-IBG Book Series! Launched in 2000 under the Editorship of Nick Henry and Jon Sadler, this is a series quite unlike almost any other in geography. The emphasis is on research not on teaching, and on authored not on edited monographs. During the past decade the Series has published over forty books across both human and physical geography with several more commissioned for publication over the next few years. David Featherstone took over from Neil Coe (2011-2014, previously Kevin Ward 2006-2010) as human geography editor in January 2015 and Tim Allott took over from Jo Bullard (2006-2013) as physical geography editor in January 2014. Tim Allott stepped down in 2016 and David Featherstone took sole editorship of the Series from 2017, four new editorial board members with physical geography and/or environmental geography expertise were also appointed
