Climate change impacts on Bavarian biodiversity: Multidimensional Integration for better BIOdiversity projections. This research project is part of the bayklif program of the Bavarian State Ministry for Science, Research and the Arts.
Central aim of this project is to improve our understanding the effects of how climate and land-use change on the Bavarian fauna and to build reliable future projections of biodiversity in Bavaria. We will combine data on species distributions of birds, butterflies, dragonflies and grasshoppers (and potentially other taxa) with information from physiology, ecology and biogeography as well as different modelling approaches and across different spatial scales. With this multi-dimensional integration across taxa, scales and disciplines we aim to develop realistic scenarios for biological diversity – in Bavaria and beyond.
