“I would use this book in upper-level Environmental Science courses, as it presently is the most comprehensive book to include alpine and arctic regions, climatic, cryospheric, ecological and geomorphological aspects as well as human dimensions. It is wide enough in scope to use in an entire course, and yet has enough depth.” (The
Holocene, 24 January 2013)
“It will also be useful to North American scientists working in the North for its comprehensive coverage and its references. The editors and authors deserve thanks for a useful contribution.” (Artic, Antarctic, and Alpine Research, 1 November 2012)

"I highly recommend the research based and well structured book Changing Cold Environments: A Canadian Perspective edited by Hugh French and Olav Slaymaker, to any undergraduate students, journalists, policy makers, business leaders, and engineers seeking a complete overview of the impact of environmental change on cold climates. This book forms a solid knowledge base that has real value beyond the classroom, and into the boardrooms of business and the halls of government." (Blog Business World, 9 February 2012)
