ECN and environmental indicators

The presence and abundance of various plant and animal species have been used to infer the state of the environment. ECN data have been applied to develop a range of 'environmental indicators' that can now be used as alternative measures of changes in climate and air pollution.

You can explore ECN environmental indicators on the ECN Data Centre.

Climate Change Indicators

ECN data were used to generate a set of indicators developed for DETR (now Defra).

Biodiversity Indicators - Climate Change Impacts

This project was funded by Defra to produce a climate change indicator to measure changes in the abundance in climate sensitive species.  A single, composite indicator was developed, based on a substantial core of common butterfly, moth and carabid beetle species.
