Evaluation of sources of uncertainty in projected hydrological changes under climate change in 12 large-scale river basins. Vrije Universiteit Brussel KU Leuven
One of the key inputs of a hydrological model is the potential evapotranspiration (PET), which sets an upper limit to evapotranspirative water demand. However, limited data availability often challenges the choice of a PET estimation method, which in turn affects the PET estimates as well as the water balance (WB) components. The objectives of this research are (1) to evaluate the use of different sources of weather input data to ...

Climate change causes rapid changes in the distribution and site abundance of birds in winter Instituut voor Natuur- en Bosonderzoek
Detecting coherent signals of climate change is best achieved by conducting expansive, long-term studies. Here, using counts of waders (Charadrii) collected from ca. 3500 sites over 30 years and covering a major portion of western Europe, we present the largestscale study to show that faunal abundance is influenced by climate in winter. We demonstrate that the ‘weighted centroids’ of populations of seven species of wader occurring in ...
