European wild bird indicators, 2017 update

The Pan-European Common Bird Monitoring Scheme (PECBMS) presents a set of updated European wild bird indicators for the time period 1980-2015. 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.

Thanks to the new grant from the European Commission (project „New Generation European Wild Bird Indicators“), PECBMS core activities could re-start again in 2017. The project, led by RSPB in cooperation with CSO will deliver standard supra-national species trends and indicators and will make them available at the web site.
