A recently published study indicates that unlike the rest of Europe, Finland was slow to adopt farming. This has been established through chronological methods and pollen analyses, as well as by comparing the results with previous estimates of the size of the human population.
Two recent doctoral dissertations studied the impacts of climate change and changes to the quality of habitats on Finnish birds. The results indicate that the situation of nearly all bird populations in the studies had declined.

Birds on map
The Third Finnish Breeding Bird Atlas survey was conducted in 2006–2010. The first two atlases were carried out in 1974–79 and 1986–1989. The aim of the third atlas was to examine present distributions of birds and compare them with those published in the previous atlases. The atlas data can be utilized together with other long-term bird monitoring and other environmental data to investigate changes in biodiversity.
