Climate change may also significantly impact on animal species. Higher temperatures and food shortages can contribute to a reduction in the body mass of birds and may have serious implications on bird populations’ structure and species competition. Climate changes are amongst the factors that contribute to the spread and establishment of invasive tropical bird species in Israel (Israel’s Ministry of Environmental Protection 2010). According to the 4th National Report of the Republic of Cyprus to the United Nations Convention on Biological Diversity, the island has a rich biodiversity and is a centre of endemism for birds, mammals, insects and plants.

More frequent occurrences of weather extremes, such as dry spells and heatwaves, will potentially damage agriculture more than changes in the annual average temperature. 8 °C mean temperature increase in Europe, many areas of Southern Europe are projected to be less suitable for growing nearly all biofuel crops by 2050, and crops other than olives and heat and drought resistant ones. • Temperature increase likely affects pollinating insect species leading to lower yields. Giannakopoulos et al.

2 Ecosystems and Biodiversity 31 • Accelerated changes since 2000 in phenology (timing of seasonal biological phenomena) and distribution of marine species have been observed, such as earlier seasonal cycles (by 4–6 weeks) and northward movements. Changes in geographic distribution of fish may affect the level of presence of commercially important fish species and the management of fisheries in general. • Warming of surface water can have several effects on aquatic ecosystems like movement of freshwater species northwards and to higher altitudes and changes in life-cycle events (phenology).
