wind farm effects ecosystem

研究發現風力發電會影響生態平衡,以印度西高止山為例,風力發電對當地猛禽構成威脅,令牠們的數量大減,而牠們最常捕食的反身蜥,在沒有捕食者的環境下,行為及外觀也產生變化,體内壓力荷爾蒙濃度較低,驚覺性更慢,數量也大增,破壞當地的生態食物鍊。

study found wind farm is affecting the ecosystem. in the Western Ghats of western India, wind farm is a threat to the top predators, the raptors; when the number of raptors decreases, their favourite meal, fan-throated lizards are living in a predator-free environment. the behaviour and appearance of these lizards have changed; their stress hormone is lower and their vigilance against possible threat is lower as well. with the wind farm, the raptors are gone and the number of lizards increased, and destroy the food chain.
