Vulnerability assessment of shrubland ecosystems in europe under climatic changes (VULCAN)

Ziel

European shrub land ecosystems are vulnerable to various environmental stress factors. Climate change will lead to higher nighttime temperature, more vigorous rainstorms and extended droughts which will likely have impacts on ecosystem functioning in European shrub lands. VULCAN investigates the these impacts by experimental manipulations of 6 shrub land ecosystems in Europe and studies of the effects of warming and drought on plant, soil, fauna and soil water processes. Temperature manipulations are done as nighttime warming and drought as 2-month summer drought. Based on the experimental results and existing knowledge on management impacts on shrub land ecosystems an expert system is developed to conduct vulnerability scenarios for shrub lands in order to evaluate and prioritise management actions. The results are further integrated with experiences from potential end users through an end user panel and management guidelines to counteract climate change effects on shrub lands are developed.
