NatureScot Research Report 1273 - Development of Marine Bird Sensitivity Assessments of FeAST.


This publication reports on the results of the NatureScot project that made a sensitivity assessment for 36 marine bird species across 36 discrete human induced pressures for inclusion within the Feature activity sensitivity tool (FeAST). This includes evaluating and refining the existing feature sensitivity assessment methodology, originally used for benthic habitats, to ensure that it is applicable to marine birds and providing recommendations for improvements to future marine bird sensitivity assessments.
