Wind energy facilities can be fatal to tree-roosting bats, particularly during late summer and fall on nights when wind speeds are low and temperatures are high. The high mortality may threaten some populations, prompting efforts to reduce these risks. In a study in the December issue of the Wildlife Society Bulletin, researchers looked at ways to predict bat activity among turbines to develop strategies to reduce fatalities while allowing for energy generation.
Other articles look at the effects of antler point restrictions on deer harvest, immobilizing mountain goats by helicopter, using drones and mist nets to capture ring-necked pheasants, and more.
