Map of seabird vulnerability along the southern California coast

Vulnerability densitities mapped along the southern California coast, with the highest vulnerability close to shore

Detailed Description

Vulnerability values can be combined with species distribution data to map vulnerability. This map shows how collision vulnerability and displacement vulnerability vary along the southern California coast, based on data from 81 species.

This figure comes from a USGS publication detailing seabird vulnerability to wind energy. Read it here.
