Click on the map for full size. The red sections show where it is most likely that new climate combinations and species assemblages occur – i.e. where the climate has changed most rapidly along with the greatest degree of divergence (temperature and precipitation move in different directions). The yellow shades mark areas with slowly diverging development, while the blue shades mark areas where temperature and precipitation have developed in the same direction.

New climates mean new neighbours

Global warming is creating new local climates with unexpected combinations of temperature and precipitation – and thereby new ecosystems with species that do not normally live together. A new world map shows where climate change has created a basis for new species assemblages during the last approximately 110 years.

The laboratory at the Department of Geoscience is class 10 in the enclosures where samples are handled and class 100 in the laboratory itself. For a laboratory to qualify as a class 10 cleanroom, there must be fewer than 352 particles measuring more than 0.5 micrometres per cubic metre of air. By way of comparison, there are more than 35 million particles on average in the air that surrounds us on a daily basis at work, in the woods or at home. (Photo: Gry Barfod, AGiR)
