Bispo, R.; Bernardino, J.; Coelho, H.; Costa, J. (2019). Wind and Energy Wildlife Impacts Springer.

This book provides a state-of-art overview of the significant advances in understanding the impacts of wind energy on wildlife.  However, many challenges remain regarding planning and policy, assessment of direct and indirect effects on wildlife, methodological approaches, technology development, and mitigation strategies and their effectiveness.


The book comprises a selection of the best contributions presented at the 4th Conference on Wind Energy and Wildlife impacts, held in Estoril, Portugal, 2017. The contents promote the international cooperation among researchers, developers, regulators and stakeholders that have contributed to building knowledge on this topic.
