Abstract in another language

In temperate regions of the world direct effects of global warming are considered to be less severe compared to the tropics and subtropics or to the arctic regions respectively. However, warming could here coincide with a spread of tropical diseases. Diseases such as West Nile fever, Dengue fever and Leishmaniasis are dependent on insects especially mosquitoes as vectors. As a consequence of the climate induced spread of mobile insects that could act as vectors such diseases could become significant in Germany during the upcoming years.
