Webinar #12 in WREN Environmental Webinar Series
September 20, 2017 @ 15:00 - 16:30 UTC (8:00 am PT/11:00 am ET)
Finlay Bennet, Marine Scotland Science
Finlay will present a summary of a manuscript produced by the WREN collaborative on individual to population impacts. The manuscript provides an overview of how populations are defined, impacts measured, predicted and verified, and how impact thresholds can be applied for decision-making in the context of wind energy development.
Kimberly Bay and Shay Howlin, West, Inc.
Kim and Shay will present on WEST’s development of a quantitative assessment of the direct effects of wind energy on small passerines and diurnal raptors in North America. In this assessment, they used advanced statistical analyses to estimate the annual rate of small passerines and diurnal raptor fatalities and provided an understanding of how wind energy directly effects species populations.
