The in-depth review focused on project-level information potentially influencing bird and bat fatalities or exposure to wind turbines, such as geographic location and MW capacity [12]; and fatality-related information, such as number of individuals and species. The summaries include only fatalities found during standardized PCFM searches; fatalities found incidentally were not included in fatality summaries.

For each reference reviewed in detail, we present general information on some key elements of an adequate PCFM study design [35], including survey dates, bias information, and fatality estimates as number of fatalities per MW per year (MW/year). All the information presented in section 3.2 was obtained directly (i.e., data was explicitly provided) or indirectly (i.e., values were derived from geographic information or fatality data and project specifications provided) from the references used for our fatality summaries. We mapped the uncorrected (raw) number of bird fatalities by order and bat fatalities by family for each of the projects included in the fatality summaries. This information allows one to view the distribution and composition of avian and bat fatalities in Latin America.
