A bibliography on alpine pasture farming which encompasses all the alpine regions and all the relevant disciplines has never been compiled before. Its development was only pos-sible in the context of my own personal involvement with the Alps over the last 40 years, in which my understanding of the considerable diversity of this region is, and continues to be, of key importance.
This bibliography has been published as a printed edition because the medium of a book is ideally suited to reading and skimming, and as a book also provides an especially good overview and the opportunity to discover many surprising things. It has also been published in a digital edition (www. badhindelang. de / traditionell-nachhaltig / unesco-kulturerbe-alpwirtschaft), because this is the ideal medium for targeted research.
The introduction to this bibliography has also been published in German, Italian, French, English and Slovenian
at the same time, because alpine pasture farming is an alpine-wide phenomenon which requires multilingual access. As the five-language introduction contains important alp-specific terms which do not exist in many vocabularies, it can also be used as a translation aid between the different languages; in addition to this, reading the titles of the publications shows clearly how these technical terms are used in the respective context - both of which can help to ease alpine-wide communications across the language barriers, which is underdeveloped.

My very special thanks also go to the local community of Bad Hindelang, in which the alpine pasture farming plays an important role: this local community has worked hard on behalf of the alpine economy for a long time - among others, with the support of the "Hindelang Eco Model" and the entry of the alpine pasture farming into the German federal register of "Intangible Cultural Heritage" - and has made the multilingual publication of this bibliography possible in both analogue and digital form.
With this bibliography, I hope that the considerable economic, cultural and ecological importance of alpine pasture farming in both the Alpine region and Europe will be better understood once again, and that the alpine-wide cooperation will be intensified.
