Snowdrop anemone (Anemone sylvestris L.) areal changes were modelled with usage of historical, GIS and RS data, which included following. 1a) «Хорология флоры Украины» (1986). 1b) «Екофлора України» (2000-2004). 1c) Vegetation of European Part of the USSR: Analytical Maps I-IX (Attachments)/Vegetation of European Part of the USSR. S.P., Nauka, 1980.—429 pp, in Russian. 2) Atlas Florae Europaeae (1972-1996), edited by […]

European Elk (A.alces):Habitat Changes Modelling, Step 2

0 by / on Wednesday May 28th, 2008, 10:45 AM / in Models Building Journal

Animated modelling of A. alces areal in the GLOBIO Ukraine Region (1928-2008) was based on: i) historical maps, ii) reconstructed forest coverage of 1928s, iii) remote sensing data of 2000s. The Step#2 forestall a GLM modelling stage i.e. Step#3. Sources of information for the model: 1) Map of the USSR European Part Vegetation, M1:4, 000, 000, drawn up by Prof. […]

The maps shows areal changes of Brown bear (U. arctos) in GLOBIO Ukraine Region by 2050s – due to expected climate changes (with taking into account land use changes in the GLOBIO Ukraine Region). NB: the model reflects ‘convenience’ of the habitats, for example, in Crimea since disappearance of the species here in XVII c. (Makarov, 1947). http://biomodel.info/?page_id=205

White-headed Duck (O. leucocephala) Areal Changes Movie (1810-2004s) http://biomodel.info/?page_id=25 Scenario 1 Habitat changes modeling based on mean temperature in May of the 1950s and 1970s (GIS CCS). The example demonstrates that theoretically these habitats have moved to the north (Krivenko, 2001) and/or to the north-west. (See a temperature condition map for the 1950s, enclosed additionally.) The map reflects key data […]
