Until now only the study “Avoiding bird collisions with glass surfaces, experimental investigations of the efficacy of markings on glass panes under natural light conditions in Flight Tunnel II” dating from March 2007 has been published in English. Abstracts of all studies published 2004 - 2015 are now available on the homepage of the Ombuds Office for Environmental Protection of the City of Vienna.

Reading the 2007-study will help to understand the abstracts.
