Journal ArticleDOI

Raptor interactions with wind energy: Case studies from around the world

TL;DR: In this article, the authors review case studies from around the world of the effects on raptors of wind-energy development, showing that collision mortality, displacement, and habitat loss can cause population-level effects, especially for species that are rare or endangered.
Journal ArticleDOI

The application of camera trapping to assess Rallidae species richness within palustrine wetland habitat in South Africa

TL;DR: This study demonstrated the ability of camera trapping to produce accurate, reliable and rapid species inventories within palustrine wetland habitats and clearly display that camera trapping as a non-invasive survey technique can effectively determine and monitor arguably the most cryptic and elusive of the Rallidae genera within southern Africa.
Journal ArticleDOI

Lack of diversity at innate immunity Toll-like receptor genes in the Critically Endangered White-winged Flufftail (Sarothrura ayresi).

TL;DR: This study confirms low genetic diversity in the innate immune regions of the White-winged Flufftail similar to that observed in other bird species that have undergone population bottlenecks and indicates that this species is more likely to be threatened by changes to the environment that would potentially expose the species to new diseases.
Journal ArticleDOI

Predicted distributions of avian specialists: A framework for conservation of endangered forests under future climates

TL;DR: In this paper, the authors used three forest-specialized and habitat-specific bird species as focal species to understand avian connectivity and conservation of each of South Africa's three threatened forest classes, as each species is range restricted to its respective forest type.
