Of interest for researchers on marine mammals and wind energy generation:
Call for papers for a special issue of the New Zealand Journal of Zoology on: Wind Energy and Wildlife.
The use of wind energy, as an alternative to fossil fuels, has increased worldwide in recent years. It currently accounts for some 4.2% of NZ energy generation, predicted to rise to 20% by 2030. However, some research has shown negative effects of wind turbines on both bats and birds. It is timely to consider the evidence for wider impacts of the burgeoning wind energy industry. In this special issue we seek NZ and international contributions that will encourage a better dialogue and understanding of how wind energy developments affect wildlife.
The New Zealand Journal of Zoology is pleased to issue this call for papers for an upcoming special issue focussing on this topic. We welcome papers on any aspect of wind energy and wildlife, including:
* Effects on birds, particularly migratory and predatory species
* Effects on bats
* Effects on other animals
Submissions of manuscripts up to 5,000 words can be made directly to our ScholarOne online portal at:
