Be Careful What You Wish For

Warmer weather on the way? Here's a map from the Climatic Risk Atlas of European Butterflies, showing the predicted distribution of iris in 2080.

Might need to invest in that North of England road map after all!

Derek,

Could you please confirm the source from which you obtained this data from? I have looked online and although I am able to find data for "Climatic Risk Atlas of European Butterflies" in 2080, such as the report published by Martin Warren (see the link below), I was unable to locate the specifics of this report relating to iris. Cheers in advance.
