Aves y parques eólicos

Valoración del riesgo y atenuantes

Published by Quercus

The consolidation of the wind power industry along the world gives us an opportunity to better understand its environmental impact. This book written by several scientists of international recognition from different countries, presents an objective overview of the different technologies and their potential effects on birds; methods of minimizing the risk of adverse impacts; and gaps in knowledge and how to tackle them.

This book puts a considerable emphasis on encouragement and improvement of the communication between the different interested and involved parties (wind power companies, scientists, ecologists, governments, technicians and lay people).

Being a global testimony of a new threat for bird species: we hope that it will increase the awareness of the problem and lead to the implementation of adequate measures to mitigate its impact in the near future.
