  1. Hi Sarah,
    Thanks for this. Have you seen the webpage put together by the American Institute for Conservation's Committee on Sustainable Conservation Practices? There's some overlap with the references you've listed above, but it does include a link to Steve Weintraub's paper on LED lights.
