New paper in press: Ecological indicator values reveal missing predictors of species...
The questions of how much abiotic environment contributes to explain species distributions, and which abiotic factors are the most influential, are key when projecting species realized niches in space and time. In a new paper, D. Scherrer and A. Guisan show that answers to these questions can be obtained by using species’ ecological indicator values (EIVs)

New study predicts that African waterbirds will suffer from climate change
A study of Wetlands International and BirdLife International in collaboration with the Universities of Kassel, McGill, Lausanne and Wisconsin shows that many High Arctic breeding waders and African waterbirds are predicted to suffer more from the impacts of climate change than the European ones. Therefore it is essential that their freshwater habitats are safeguarded and managed as climate buffer as much as possible.
