GLOBIO-Terrestrial is a modelling framework to calculate the impact of five environmental drivers on land biodiversity for past, present and future.

forestry clear-cut
Land use, here forestry, is one of the environmental drivers impacting biodiversity.

GLOBIO is based on cause-effect relationships, derived from the literature. To use GLOBIO no detailed species data are needed. Instead, the model uses spatial information on environmental drivers as input. This input is mainly derived from the Integrated Model to Assess the Global Environment (IMAGE).

The information under this menu item refers to the current version of the model: GLOBIO3.
