BSc Biology: specialisation module "Ökologie der Tiere" (animal ecology) - part "Makroökologie - Einfluss des Klimawandels auf Artverbreitungen" (macroecology - influence of climate change on species distributions)

Content: In our part of the module we investigate the potential effects of climate change on the distributions of different European bird species. We use species distribution models to project potential distributions of birds in dependency of climate scenarios for the end of the 21st century.
