Nowadays, society is aware that anthropogenic climate change is no longer a global warming issue alone. Instead, it has important regional consequences. Regionalisation of climate change assessments is a key topic in a number of recent publications from the meteorological community, such as the series of WMO statements on the status of the global climate (WMO 2004, 2006, 2007, 2008) and the fourth assessment report of IPCC (IPCC 2007). In both publications the “region” Europe is well specified.

Home gardens can add immensely to the biodiversity of cities and towns.
They provide cover, feeding and commuting routes for wildlife including hedgehogs, badgers, birds and butterflies. If you have a garden, increase its value by planting berry-bearing trees and flowering plants. Rowan, bird cherry and dandelion, among others, can serve as food and shelter to a wide range of invertebrates.
