Animal Migration

A Synthesis

Edited by E.J. Milner-Gulland, John M. Fryxell, and Anthony R.E. Sinclair

  • Synthesises the insights from both mathematical modelling and empirical research to generate a unified understanding of the mechanisms underlying migration
  • Describes the causes and consequences of migration on a range of scales, from the individual to the ecosystem level and from movement rules to evolutionary change
  • Adopts a comparative approach, addressing overarching themes for a range of taxa and covering research disciplines including evolutionary theory, physiology, and animal behaviour
  • Links theory to applied issues such as the management and conservation of migratory species
