Abstract
  • Altitudinal variations in upland regions of the earth create variable climatic zones and conditions. Plant and animal communities must adapt to these conditions, and when they reach their tolerance limits for environmental conditions at the upper levels of a zone, they cease to exist in the environment. Humans also utilize mountains for a variety of reasons. The cultural traits which result from the adaptation of groups of people to mountain environments are unique from those of the surrounding lowlanders. Adaptation to upland areas is most often expressed in a transhumant or agro-pastoral lifestyle attuned to the climatic variations and demands of the mountain environment. This distribution of cultural traits suggests that mountains are considered unique culture areas, apart from but sharing some traits in common with neighboring lowland areas.
