Climate change in Australian tropical rainforests: an impending environmental catastrophe: 2003. This scientific article written by S. E. Williams, E.E. Bolitho and S. Fox suggests that tropic species are more prone to extinction from impacts of global warming than temperate species (Proc. R. Soc. Lond. B 2003 270, 1887-1892. doi: 10.1098/rspb.2003.2464).

Global Warming, Elevational Range Shifts, and Lowland Biotic Attrition in the Wet Tropics:  October 2008. This is a scientific article written by Colwell, R. K., G. Brehm, C. L. Cardelús, A. C. Gilman, and John T. Longino discussing the impacts of global warming on extinction rates (Science 10 October 2008: Vol. 322. no. 5899, pp. 258 - 261. DOI: 10.1126/science.1162547).

A Road Map for Pier Research on Methods to Assess and Mitigate Impacts of Wind Energy Development on Birds and Bats in California (PDF): October 2008. This 106 page report prepared for the California Energy Commission summarizes the status of research on the impacts of wind energy development on birds and bats and recommends studies to improve methods for assessing and reducing these impacts in California. Chapter 3 is especially helpful in describing the scientific literature on the topic.

Notable Wind/Wildlife Events and Publications (PDF): This website from the National Wind Coordinating Collaborative maintains a publication list of recent meetings, scientific literature and proceedings that deal with wind turbine issues related to wildlife.

Rising to the Challenge Strategic Plan for Responding to Accelerating Climate Change: September 2009.
