Baie de Seine

Bird species included in model

Dunlin (Calidris alpina), Eurasian curlew (Numenius arquata), Eurasian oystercatcher (Haematopus ostralegus)

Environmental issues simulated

Port development. Mitigation for habitat area and habitat availability time.

Recommendations from modelling

Port development can reduce shorebird survival, but mitigatation by reducing disturbance and habitat creation can offset this.
