Factors associated with bat mortality at wind energy facilities in the United States
Description: Hundreds of thousands of bats are killed annually by colliding with wind turbines in the U.S., yet little is known about factors causing variation in mortality across wind energy facilities. We conducted a quantitative synthesis of bat collision mortality with wind turbines by reviewing 218 North American studies representing 100 wind energy facilities. This data set, the largest compiled to date, provides further support that collision mortality is greatest for migratory tree-roosting species (Hoary Bat [Lasiurus cinereus], Eastern Red . . .

Effect of wind turbine noise on sleep and quality of life
The effect of wind turbine noise on sleep and quality of life: A systematic review and meta-analysis of observational studies Highlights Our results suggest that the odds of being annoyed appear significantly increased by wind turbine noise. Wind turbine noise significantly increases the odds of experiencing sleep disturbance. Noise generated by wind turbines appears to correlate with lower quality of life scores. Community preferences should be a priority during construction of new wind turbines. Objective outcome measures which separate auditory . . . Complete article »
