This project aims to predict the future distribution and ecological impact of introduced Ring-necked Parakeets Psittacula krameri. Count data are used to model habitat requirements, and this leads to a potential habitat map for the Flanders region. Data from different European populations combined with behavioural observations will result in scenarios of future range expansion. Finally, we estimate the impact on native hole-nesting species through competition for nest-sites.
