Dellwisch B, Bastian A, Bastian H-V, Schidelko K, Stiels D & Engler JO 2021: European Bee-eater Merops apiaster in Germany – where they came from, where they go to. Vogelwarte 59: 197 – 206. It is mainly climatic, biological and anthropogenic factors that lead to a spatial and temporal shift in species’ ranges. These can be accompanied by a decreas...

This paper discusses all available records of Little Bunting Emberiza pusilla during the winter months in Europe and North Africa. A total of 310 winter records could be compiled, of which 85 birds were present for more than 30 days and 45 for more than 60 days. Observations were predominantly made along the Atlantic coasts of Western and South-Wes...

When environmental conditions change, species usually face three options: adaptation, range shifts, or extinction. In the wake of climate change, it is generally believed that range shifts are the norm in mobile species such as birds, resulting in poleward range shifts. The European Bee-eater is a predominantly Mediterranean species which has expan...

Vorläufiges Ergebnis: Das Klima der letzten Jahrzehnte ist geeignet, die aktuelle Verbreitung in vielen Gebieten gut vorherzusagen. Andere Faktoren sind aber wahrscheinlich regional ebenfalls bedeutend. Preliminary result: The climate of recent decades has been able to predict the current spread of the Bee-eater in many areas well. But other fact...

Asian ring-necked parakeets (Alexandrinus manillensis, formerly Psittacula krameri, hereafter RNP) first bred in Germany in 1969. Since then, RNP numbers increased in all three major German subpopulations (Rhineland, Rhine-Main, Rhine-Neckar) over the period 2003-2018. In the Rhine-Neckar region, the population increased to more than fivefold withi...

Avian evolutionary studies have recently benefited from a plethora of new techniques as well as conceptual progresses on the evolution of ecological niches. The so-called species distribution models (SDMs) allow for niche quantifications in a way that permits comparisons among species and populations. This review will introduce the theoretical back...

Rote Listen der gefährdeten Tier-und Pflanzenarten haben sich zu wichtigen Instrumenten des Naturschutzes entwickelt. Sie werden regelmäßig zur naturschutzfachlichen Bewertung von Eingriffen oder Planungsvorhaben und zur Bewertung von Lebensräumen herangezogen. In Nordrhein-Westfalen wird die Rote Liste der Vögel gemeinsam von der Nordrhein-Westfäl...

Ecology and population development of Asian Ring-necked Parakeets (Alexandrinus manillensis) in Germany and Europe with acutal numbers. The Asian Ring-necked Parakeet or Rose-ringed Parakeet Alexandrinus manillensis (Bechstein, 1800) sensu Braun et al. (2016), so far Psittacula krameri manillensis, is a common breeding bird in Southern Asia. It is...
Article
For the Red List of threatened breeding birds of North-Rhine - Westphalia (NRW), produced in cooperation by NWO and LANUV, species have been assessed through four criteria: current population size, long-term (the last 100 years) and short-term population trend (25 years) and specific threat factors. Within NRW, six regions are differentiated. Curre...
Article
Quantifying species distributions using species distribution models (SDMs) has emerged as a central method in modern biogeography. These empirical models link species occurrence data with spatial environmental information. Since their emergence in the 1990s, thousands of scientific papers have used SDMs to study organisms across the entire tree of...
Article
Non-native species can have severe impacts on ecosystems. Therefore, predictions of potentially suitable areas that are at risk of the establishment of non-native populations are desirable. In recent years, species distribution models (SDMs) have been widely applied for this purpose. However, the appropriate selection of species records, whether fr...

Unfortunately, in our recently published article (Stiels & Schidelko 2014) the location names were wrongly spelled, i.e. for some reason the order of letters was re-versed and capitalization was incorrect. The correct no-tation should be as follows: Bari Kowt: Kunar: Farah: Acknowledgements. We are very grateful to Laibale Friedman who encountered...

Farmland birds are among the most serious declining animal and plant species in North-Rhine - Westphalia as well as all over Europe. This is reason for serious concern because birds are among the most visible indicators of biodiversity. Numerous studies show that changes in agricultural practices are the principal causes for these declines. The Orn...

Here we present the first record of Baya Weaver Ploceus philippinus for the country of Afghanistan. A spec-imen was collected on May 29, 1967 in the vicinity of Bari Kowt (‫یرب‬ ‫)توك‬ in the province of Kunar (‫.)ړنوک‬ In addi-tion, a Hooded Wheatear Oenanthe monacha was collected on January 17, 1968 in the vicinity of Farah (‫)هارف‬ in south-west...

The climatic cycles of the Quaternary, during which global mean annual temperatures have regularly changed by 5-10°C, provide a special opportunity for studying the rate, magnitude, and effects of geographic responses to changing climates. During the Quaternary, high- and mid-latitude species were extirpated from regions that were covered by ice or...

Capturing birds for scientific purposes in tropical and subtropical areas is particularly challenging. Problems due to general judicial, socio-economic and socio-cultural conditions can often be avoided or reduced by an intensive prearrangement and cooperation with local partners. When actually capturing birds, logistical challenges, differences in...
Article
Studies dealing with changes of biodiversity in time and space constitute an important part of biogeography, ecology and conservation biology. Areas of long-term climate stability are particularly interesting as they might have facilitated the survival of species over historical times and thus are crucial for understanding contemporary diversity pa...

The potentially invasive Rose-ringed Parakeet is widely distributed in many urban areas along the river Rhine. The birds regularly spend the night at large common roosts, but there are few published studies on the roosts in our region. In this study, the roost in Bonn is characterized. From March 2011 until September 2012, the arriving Rose-ringed...

Human transport and commerce have led to an increased spread of non-indigenous species. Alien invasive species can have major impacts on many aspects of eco-logical systems. Therefore, the ability to predict regions potentially suitable for alien species, which are hence at high risk, has become a core task for successful manage-ment. The Common Wa...

Studying shifts in species diversity through time and space is an essential component of many aspects of biogeography and ecology. In this study, we predict the potential distribution of 61 species of African estrildid finches in order to assess current and past diversity patterns. Models were projected onto two climatic scenarios (Community Climat...

Specimen-based data is available for ecological niche modelling in large numbers via online databases, but can be applied only facing some handicaps. We tested various modelling approaches using occurrence data of the Green-winged Pytilia derived from the Global Biodiversity Information Facility (GBI F) in different combinations versus random point...

In spring and summer 2007 a male Cirl Bunting was present at the Drachenfels near Bad Honnef-Rhöndorf (Rhein-Sieg-Kreis, southern Rhineland) for a period of at least four months -from 16 th April to 16 th July. In 2008 up to two singing males were present at the same location. To our knowledge these are the first records for North Rhine-Westphalia...

We study underlying processes of diversity patterns and ecological niches in estrildid finches (Estrildidae). They comprise a group of small, often colourful passerine birds distributed throught the Oll Word tropics. They inhabit savanna and forested habitats making them ideal model organisms to study biodiversity patterns in these areas. Moreover, they are entangled in complex brood-parasite-host- interactions with whydahs and indigobirds (Viduidae). Finally, as well-known cage birds some species were transported by humans to regions far away from their native home and are now widely regarded as invasive species.
