The Zoology Unit of the Finnish Museum of Natural History is inviting applications for a position of a post-doctoral researcher, for a fixed term of 2 years and 8 months into the project ´The combined effect of climate change and habitat protection on population changes and range shifts in birds´.

The report summarizes the activities of the Pan-European Common Bird Monitoring Scheme (PECBMS) from January 2014 to June 2014. New update of European species population trends and indices as well as common bird indicators were the most important achievements in the reporting period (January to June 2014). Work towards improvements of the indicators, particularly the farmland bird indicator, has commenced and it is expected to bring results next year. PECBMS outputs has been used for policy and research purposes. Interest in PECBMS data among external researchers has continuously increased, thus we plan to increase our capacity by hiring a research officer.



This report presents an updated population trends and indices of 163 common European bird species for the time period 1980 - 2012 that have been produced by the Pan-European Common Bird Monitoring Scheme (PECBMS) in 2014. This year we modified the presentation of species trends: newly, we present long-term trends (trends for long time period) and ten-year trends (trends for last ten years).



Pan-European Common Bird Monitoring Scheme (PECBMS) presents a set of updated European wild bird indicators for the time period 1980 - 2012. The indicators are computed for Europe and its regions (West, North, Central & East and South Europe), and EU, New and Old EU states for common farmland, common forest, and all common birds. Both single European and BioGeo regional species habitat classification are used to assess if each bird species belongs to farmland, forest or other indicator.



The Catalan Ornithological Institute (ICO) and the coordinators of the Turkish Breeding Bird Atlas organised an expedition to Turkey in June 2014. The aim was to help with obtaining field data for the first Turkish Breeding Bird Atlas and the second European Breeding Bird Atlas (EBBA2).
