An ensemble of bioclimatic envelope models (BEMs) was used to model the climatic suitability of 191 stream macroinvertebrate species from 12 orders across Europe under two climate change scenarios for 2080 on a spatial resolution of 5 arc minutes and patterns in relative changes in species' climatically suitable areas were analysed.
