1st International Bat Research Online Symposium (IBROS): Towards solving the wind energy-bat conflict
The global expansion of wind energy production represents an, as yet, unsolved green-green dilemma. Keynote speakers will report on the wind energy-bat conflict from their country or continent, and present new scientific evidence on how to protect bats efficiently at wind turbines.
