Interest: Abundance of waterbirds and seabirds
Country: United Kingdom

About Me:

Aonghais Cook works for the British Trust for Ornithology on a wide variety of research projects, mainly focussing on the ecology of marine birds. His research examines the causes of changes in the abundance of waterbirds and seabirds, and potential impacts of man-made developments on their populations. Recent work has focussed on environmental impacts of renewable energy developments and developingmonitoring strategies and indicators for seabirds and other marine species. Aonghais regularly provides scientific advice to government organisations, industry and others.
