Impact of wind energy development on birds and bats: the case of Adama wind farm, Central Ethiopia
Background In contrast to wind farm collision, birds and bats were understudied and their occurrence and function were poorly understood. Here, study on mortality of iconic bird and bat species wereExpand

Energy development in the Great Plains: Implications and mitigation opportunities
Energy is an integral part of society. The major US energy sources of fossil fuels (coal, oil, natural gas); biofuels (ethanol); and wind are concentrated in grassland ecosystems of the Great Plains.Expand
Effects of a wind farm installation on the understory bat community of a highly biodiverse tropical region in Mexico
TLDR
This is the first study to reveal the diversity of a Neotropical bat community after wind turbines begin to operate, and it shows that components of biodiversity increased during the second stage of operation, and species composition began to resemble that of the site preparation stage. Expand

TLDR
A before-after-control-impact (BACI) assessment to determine if wind facilities placed in native mixed-grass prairies displaced breeding grassland birds and how species-specific behaviors can be used to inform management decisions about turbine placement and the potential impact to individual species.

Impacts of Wind Energy Development on Bats: Implications for Conservation
At a time of growing concern over the rising costs and long-term environmental impacts from the use of fossil fuels, wind energy has become an increasingly important sector of the electrical powerExpand
Assessing fatality minimization for hoary bats amid continued wind energy development
Abstract Wind energy is an important sector of the renewable energy market. Observations of bat fatalities at wind farms raise concern about impacts to biodiversity, particularly amid projections ofExpand
Den-Site Selection by Eastern Spotted Skunks in the Central Appalachian Mountains of West Virginia
Abstract We assessed den-site selection of Spilogale putorius (Eastern Spotted Skunk) in the Appalachian Mountains of West Virginia by radio-tracking 8 individuals to 83 dens from January 2018 toExpand
