Channelrhodopsin-2, a directly light-gated cation-selective membrane channel
Microbial-type rhodopsins are found in archaea, prokaryotes, and eukaryotes. Some of them represent membrane ion transport proteins such as bacteriorhodopsin, a light-driven proton pump, orExpand

Rapid microevolution of migratory behaviour in a wild bird species
THE Blackcap, Sylvia atricapilla, a widespread Palearctic migratory bird, rarely wintered in Britain until the 1950s. The winter population has since increased to several thousand birds1,2. RingingExpand

Frequency of migrants and migratory activity are genetically correlated in a bird population: evolutionary implications.
Most migratory bird populations are composed of individuals that migrate and individuals that remain resident. While the role of ecological factors in maintaining this behavioral dimorphism hasExpand

All across Africa: highly individual migration routes of Eleonora's falcon
Eleonora's falcon (Falco eleonorae) is a rare raptor species that delays its breeding period until late summer to feed its young with passerines at the peak of autumn migration. Since the 1950s, thisExpand

Current selection for lower migratory activity will drive the evolution of residency in a migratory bird population
Global warming is impacting biodiversity by altering the distribution, abundance, and phenology of a wide range of animal and plant species. One of the best documented responses to recent climateExpand
