In Europe, 90% to 95% of all tick bite incidences in humans are caused by Ixodes (I) ricinus (in Eastern Europe by persulcatus ). Neglecting the large number of unreported cases, 100,000 to 150,000 of these incidences become manifest as LB and between 10,000 and 15,000 as TBE. TBE virus (TBEV) is endemic in regions of 27 European countries and the number of(More)
In studies of spatially confined networks, network measures can lead to false conclusions since most measures are boundary-affected. This is especially the case if boundaries are artificial and not inherent in the underlying system of interest (e.g. borders of countries). An analytical estimation of boundary effects is not trivial due to the complexity of(More)
In this study we introduce two new nodeweighted difference measures on complex networks as a tool for climate model evaluation. The approach facilitates the quantification of a model’s ability to reproduce the spatial covariability structure of climatological time series. We apply our methodology to compare the performance of a statistical and a dynamical(More)
The mean climatic development for Germany was investigated within the period 2031/60 in comparison to the situation in the observational period 1981/2010. The RCP8.5-Scenario of the IPCC was used because it reflects the actual CO2-emissions very well. On this basis the temperature trend for Germany was estimated using 21 GCM runs up to the year 2100.
