Impact of climate change on populations of European birds, 1980-2005

Figure Created 12 Nov 2009 Published 12 Nov 2009 Last modified 29 Nov 2012
Weighted composite population trends under climate change were modelled as an index for two groups of widespread European land birds for 1980 to 2005, using climate envelope models


Additional information

The index is set to 100 in 1980. The orange line shows the modelled weighted composite trend of 30 bird species. It shows an increase of their geographical range in the study region. The green line shows the modelled trend of 92 species that have lost range. Range changes were modelled by averaging using three global climate models and two emissions scenarios.
