Long-term effects of climate change on Swedish bird populations

There is today ample evidence of the impact of recent climate change on bird phenology, including ecological mismatches and shifts in population trends. However, the mechanisms and patterns underlying the changes are poorly understood. During my postdoc project, I investigate the potential effect of climate change on the breeding time and reproductive success of migratory and resident birds breeding across Sweden. Using thousands of nest reports of different bird species and different sets of environmental parameters, that give information on vegetation greenness and weather changes over time, I study breeding time and breeding performance patterns during the last 36 years. This project is funded by the RA8 of the Bolin Centre in collaboration with Cecilia Kullberg at the Zoology department, and Thord Fransson at the Swedish Museum of Natural History.
