[tweetmeme The European Environment Agency has just issued the annual EU greenhouse gas inventory report, which is the official submission to the UNFCCC Secretariate on Europe’s performance in greenhouse gas reduction.  From the executive summary of this report: The European Union (EU), as a party to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), … Continue reading

Shifting Global Invasive Potential of European Plants with Climate Change

Global climate change and invasions by nonnative species rank among the top concerns for agents of biological loss in coming decades. Although each of these themes has seen considerable attention in the modeling and forecasting communities, their joint effects remain little explored and poorly understood. We developed ecological niche models for 1804 species from the … Continue reading
