Moving polewards in winter: a recent change in the migratory strategy of a pelagic seabird?


During the non-breeding period, many birds migrate to milder areas, found closer to the equator than their breeding sites. Opposite movements are very rare.

This can be used as a tracer for the movement of seabirds between… (More)
