Vegetation of Bavaria’s normal landscape between global warming and hemeroby
Subproject 3 within the Senior Research Association: Effects of climate change on biodiversity and ecosystem services in semi-natural, agricultural and urban landscapes and strategies for management of climate change (LandKlif) Supervisors: Prof. Dr. Jörg Ewald (HSWT) & Prof. Dr. Johannes Kollmann (TUM) Nature conservation has been unable to halt losses of biodiversity in Bavaria, despite considerable success in preserving and managing high value habitats in protected areas. Especially under climate change normal forests, forest edges, hedges, grasslands, field margins and green spaces in cities are required as corridors and buffer zones for ecosystem services. Within the framework of the Landklif consortium our project examines the vegetation of these ecosystems with respect to their susceptibility to climate warming, land-use change and urbanization as well as to their potential as refuge or connectivity element for wild plants and their dependent communities. Based on these findings we derive recommendations for optimizing the green infrastructure by managing forest, landscape and green space as well as agro-environmental schemes.
Strategies for adaptation to climate change in landscape management, landscape and spatial planning
Subproject 10 within the Senior Research Association: Effects of climate change on biodiversity and ecosystem services in semi-natural, agricultural and urban landscapes and strategies for management of climate change (LandKlif) Supervisor: Prof. Dr. Christoph Moning (HSWT) Climate change has a significant impact on functions of landscape as a whole, especially on state and management of valuable species and habitats as well as ecosystem services. This subproject examines how planning instruments can contribute to the adaptation of biotope networks and green infrastructure to climate change regarding different levels of land-use intensity. Furthermore it will be proven which conclusions can be drawn on planning instruments with focus on the "normal landscape" like the outskirts of Munich. Thus, the results compiled in subprojects 2–10 will be checked for feasibility in the field of landscape planning. In this process, existing instruments of landscape and spatial planning, rural development, agro-environmental measures, ecological compensation, and conservation management will be investigated with respect to their possible contributions to climate change adaptation. Considering different climate conditions, intensities of land use as well as urbanization levels, guiding recommendations will be developed for the improvement, and extension of the planning instruments. In the "normal landscape", the access to habitats for conservation is limited. The subproject investigates which strategies can be established to enhance higher resilience amidst climate change for widespread habitats and land uses.
