Details

This report card summarises and presents evidence about the effects of climate change on habitats and ecosystems in the UK. The original report was published in 2013, and the 2015 version has both updated and extended its coverage of the issues, in particular presenting new material on freshwater ecology and soil organisms.

The main report card is supported by technical source papers focusing on 17 specific climate change issues, including terrestrial habitats and mammals, invertebrates, soil biodata and Sites of Special Scientific Interest.
