NatureScot Research Report 1039 - Development of a population model tool to predict shooting levels of Greenland barnacle geese on Islay
The report replaces the existing population model for Greenland barnacle geese currently used to support the Islay Sustainable Goose Management Strategy. The new population model is a predictive tool in the form of an application, which allows input of current count and environmental data to predict the required levels of shooting in any future year to achieve population targets as part of a reduction cull to reduce agricultural damage.
