Measuring the potential impacts of wind farms on wildlife can be difficult and may require development
of new statistical tools and models to accurately reflect the measurement process. This presentation
reviews the recent history of approaches to estimating wildlife fatality under the unique conditions
encountered at wind farms, their unifying themes and their potential shortcomings. Avenues of future
research are suggested to continue to address the needs of resource managers and industry in
understanding direct impacts of wind turbine-caused wildlife fatality.
