In this second newsletter we present you with updated data from

species capable of withstanding the predicted more powerful
A new research project draws attention to the challenges that will
be facing architects in the future due to climate change.
Finally, a new Baltic Sea project, BALTADAPT, is presented, which
was recently awarded funding support of EUR 2.8 million under the
Baltic Sea Region Programme 2007-2013. The project is being managed
by the Danish Meteorological Institute.
