Abstract: 
  • Quantifying impacts of development on populations is a key problem for ecologists.
  • However, approaches to do this are often subject to significant uncertainty.
  • We propose a framework to assess the impacts of wind farms on seabird populations.
  • Probabilistic approaches proved less robust to uncertainty than others.
  • Decisions about impacts must be made in the context of the population concerned.
