Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



This paper examines the upper borders of the various forms of the settlement and dwellings and the various economic activities to which they are related in terms of their dependence on natural and climatic conditions of this area which is currently experiencing centre-periphery change. The resultant ecological consequences culminate in the destruction of the vegetation cover in the sensitive periglacial zone by trampling from overstocked pastures, in the risk of soil erosion in semi-arid Tibet, in the wind abrasion of the cultivated areas and in the exhaustion of the soil from the increased use of fertilisers
