Birds and Wind Farms: Risk Assessment and Mitigation

£24.99

Product description

Birds and Wind Farms: Risk Assessment and Mitigation

Presents a scientific approach for the assessment of the hazard this new industry poses on bird populations.

The book is coordinated by three researchers from Donana Biological Station (Spanish Research Council) and written by different scientists of international recognition from different countries. It presents an objective overview of the various technologies and their potential effects on birds and bats; methods of minimizing the risk of adverse impacts; and gaps in the actual knowledge and how to tackle them.

The increasing number of wind farms around the world must be aware of the potential effects on birds and bats and get familiar with the methods of minimizing the risk of adverse impacts. The experts put a considerable emphasis on encouragement and improvement of the communication between the different interested and involved parties (wind power companies, scientists, ecologist, governments, technicians and lay people).

Brings together valuable case studies in an area where there is generally a paucity of good-quality research. - Mark Avery, IBIS, October 2008.
