Guiding conservation of golden eagle populations in light of expanding renewable energy development : a demographic and habitat-based approach
MetadataShow full item record
Golden eagles (Aquila chrysaetoes) are an iconic wide-ranging predator distributed across the Northern Hemisphere. In western North America, populations are considered to be stable, though there is a mounting concern that an anticipated increase in renewable wind energy development will threaten populations. Wind turbines are a known source of mortality for many avian species including golden eagles, thus there is a pressing need to offer land managers conservation planning guidance in light of future development. Working with several collaborators, I aimed to develop applied research in ...
