Title: Ecotourists' Motivation and Its Relation to Ecotourism's Principles
Abstract: The definition of ecotourism and ecotourists became a matter of debate among researchers. Moreover, such aspects as ecotourists’ motivation and behavior are frequently criticized by scholars, who claim that they contradict to principles of sustainability and are not environmentally friendly. Nevertheless, in terms of lacking definition, the concept of ecotourism is reflected by its principles, which are considered by researches as a sustainable basis for this tourism form. In this occasion, the consumers of the ecotourism industry are recognized as the tourists, who reflect the ecotourism’s principles at all stages of the travel. Thus, ecotourists’ behavior, preferences, and decision regarding the trip should correspond to the ecotourism principles. All these characteristics are determined by tourists’ motivation as it is a base which stimulates people to make a certain decision (Pearce et al., 1998). Thereby, to consider travelers as ecotourists, their motivation to travel and to behave in a certain way during the trip should be based on ecotourism’s principles.
The present thesis examines the ecotourist’s motivation to be involved in ecotours and to behave in a certain way during the trip with the purpose to define whether their motivation corresponds to the theoretical principles of ecotourism or not. The study is focused on those tourists who identify themselves as an ecotourist. The research was conducted using quantitative methodology. The tourists’ motivation was defined using an online questionnaire. This study is not limited to space. Thus, it investigates general ecotourists’ motivation without focusing on regional features.
As a result of this research, it was revealed that the vast majority of self-identified ecotourists are driven by personal motives, especially when it comes to motivation to behave in a certain way during the tour. Nevertheless, in some cases, the personal tourists’ motives coincide with the ecotourism’s principles and one-quarter of tourists are strongly motivated to be ecotourism’s principles when participating in the eco trip.
The findings of this research can be included to the broader studies of ecotourists’motivation, as well as it can be used for further researches aimed to determine the criteria for identifying the consumers of ecotourism and to verify the applicability of the respondents-based approach to define the ecotourists.

Title: A longitudinal study of backcountry track and campsite conditions on the Overland Track, Tasmania, Australia
Author: Grant Dixon; Journal of Outdoor Recreation and Tourism 19 (2017) 25-36; http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.jort.2017.05.002
Abstract:
The 79 km Overland Track is Tasmania's premier overnight walking track (trail) and one of Australia's best known and most popular backcountry hikes. Trampling impacts (poor track condition) were recognised in the1970s and degraded campsites were a concern by the 1980s. Despite three decades of intermittent works, many sections of track remained in poor condition in the early 2000s, but targeted works since 2006 have addressed many problem areas. Hardening of campsites at selected overnight nodes commenced in 2000 and a reduction in overall camping impacts followed, presumed due to a greater concentration of camping use at the hardened sites despite unrestricted camping still being permitted. Longitudinal monitoring of both track (8 years) and campsite (16–25 years) conditions, using relatively simple techniques, have successfully described the scale and delineated the location of changes in condition and so provided a useful planning tool for management. In particular, it has contributed to documenting a contemporaneous improvement in track and campsite conditions partly associated with a booking system to regulate walker use of the Overland Track, introduced in 2005. Booking fees have contributed to management successes by providing adequate and consistent resourcing for the repair and maintenance of walking track surface infrastructure.
Management implications:
Extensive hardening is an effective way to sustainably manage a moderate to high use walking track that has not been initially well-designed.
Adequate and consistent resourcing for the repair and maintenance of walking track surface infrastructure is necessary to sustainably manage such tracks.
The provision of inviting facilities, including camping platforms, at selected overnight nodes has resulted in a concentration of visitor camping use on a smaller number of campsites, hence reducing the overall impact of camping along the Overland Track.

Title: A GIS-based approach for gully erosion susceptibility modelling using bivariate statistics methods in the Ourika watershed, Morocco

Abstract
Gully erosion is an important environmental issue with severe impacts. This study aimed to characterize gully erosion susceptibility and assess the capability of information value (InfVal) and frequency ratio (FR) models for its spatial prediction in Ourika watershed of the High Atlas region of Morocco. These two bivariate statistical methods have been used for gully erosion susceptibility mapping by comparing each data layer of causative factor to the existing gully distribution. Weights to the gully causative factors are assigned based on gully density. Gullies have been mapped through field surveys and Google earth high-resolution images. Lithofacies, land use, slope gradient, length-slope, aspect, stream power index, topographical wetness index and plan curvature were considered predisposing factors to gullying. The digitized gullies were randomly split into two parts. Sixty-five percent (65%) of the mapped gullies were randomly selected as training set to build gully susceptibility models, while the remaining 35% cases were used as validation set for the models’ validation. The results showed that barren and sparse vegetation lands and slope gradient above 50% were very susceptible to gully erosion. The ROC curve was used for testing the accuracy of the mentioned models. The analysis confirms that the FR model (AUC 80.61%) shows a better accuracy than InfVal model (AUC 52.07%). The performance of the gully erosion susceptibility map constructed by FR model is greater than that of the map produced by InfVal model. The findings proved that GIS-based bivariate statistical methods such as frequency ratio model could be successfully applied in gully susceptibility mapping in Morocco mountainous regions and in other similar environments. The produced susceptibility map represents a useful tool for sustainable planning, conservation and protection of land from gully processes.
