As this is evidence-based guidance, appendix 1 provides references and further details to the first section of each bird species examined so far – auks, ducks and phalaropes, gannets and cormorants, gulls, loons/divers and grebes, petrels and shearwaters, skuas, and terns – for each of the three criteria for assessing climate change impacts: exposure, sensitivity, and adaptive capacity. This appendix is meant for those who wish to examine the primary sources or find additional reading.
Appendix 2: This appendix provides access to two searchable folders, which include the accompanying methodology and references to the second section of each species – the potential actions in response to climate change. The “Methodology” folder contains information on how the species assessments and the conservation actions were chosen and scored. The “References” folder contains a complete list of all studies used in this guide. The studies documenting the effectiveness of actions on seabirds have been used as the primary evidence base for the second section of each species.
