Abstract

Climate change has started range shifts for many species, natural communities and established ecosystems. They follow their suitable climate space and further shifts are expected. Whether species or their aggregations will be able to colonize regions where climate conditions become suitable, so called „new climate space“, depends on species traits and habitat fragmentation and other natural and manmade barriers. At the same time, possible demographic change in human populations, economic phenomena such scale enlargement in agriculture,, health care and natural risks will affect the European cultural landscapes. One of the key tools of obtaining the relevant data is monitoring features of changes correlated with climate change patterns. We need monitoring programmes for land use change, species shifts and developing detailed scenarios. With the help of robust datasets we are able to identify areas where the spatial cohesion of the natural or cultural ecosystem pattern is expected to be insufficient to allow colonization of the new climatic space as well as where and how we could develop new adaptation strategies
