Land use and eutrophication

For wetlands about 40 publications were found relating biodiversity intactness to catchment land use intensity. About 15 of these studies could be used for quantitative MSA calculations. A linear regression showed an average 0.8 % MSA loss per % land use in the catchment.

Change in hydrological regime

For riverine wetlands GLOBIO-Aquatic includes the change in hydrological regime as a pressure factor. The hydrological alteration is expressed in three disturbance levels. The data were fitted by linear mixed-effect models.
