Abstract Partial migration is a phenomenon in which some individuals of a species are migrants while others are residents. This paper employs the most current information available to provide an overview of the Australian landbird migration system and the occurrence of partial migration. An extensive review of the literature showed that migration occurs in almost 40% of landbird species breeding in Australia, with a large proportion of these containing both migrant and resident populations… Expand
Effects of urbanization on bird migration
Abstract Nearly one in five bird species is migratory, but not all individuals within a migratory species necessarily migrate: in partially migratory species, some do and some do not. SuchExpand
The Australo-Papuan bird migration system: another consequence of Wallace's Line
TLDR
The restriction of migration within Australo-Papua and the high variability of migratory pathways have important implications for the ecology and evolution of the Australasian avifauna. Expand
Partial migration in a subtropical wading bird in the Southeastern U.S.
TLDR
It is found that the wood stork population is partially migratory, with 59% of individuals seasonally commuting between winter ranges in Florida and summer ranges elsewhere in the population range (migrants), and 28% remaining in a single area in Florida year-round (residents). Expand
Life history correlates of alternative migratory strategies in American Dippers.
TLDR
Because migrants obtained no fitness benefits by moving to seasonal breeding territories, the data are consistent with the hypothesis that migration could evolve in sedentary populations if competition for limited resources forces some individuals to seek breeding opportunities outside their initial range.

A Comparative Study of Species Diversity of Migrant Birds Between Protected and Unprotected Areas of the Hadejia-Nguru Wetlands, Nigeria
Among the most complex and fascinating behaviour in birds is their long, non-stop migration. Despite Hadejia-Nguru Wetlands (Ramsar site) being an important wintering ground for migratory birds,Expand
Movement patterns of three species of sparrow in the central Monte desert, Argentina: differences between and within species
TLDR
The banded and monitored individuals of three species of sparrow, the Many-coloured Chaco-Finch, Ringed Warbling-Finches and Rufous-collared Sparrow in a temperate site in the central Monte desert, Argentina, to evaluate differences in site-attachment, provide a basis for a better understanding of the evolution of movement patterns of birds in temperate South America.

Movement ecology of Australian arid-zone birds
The movements of nomadic species are poorly understood, being highly dynamic over time and space. There is an urgent need to better understand this group as current conservation approaches appear notExpand
Patterns of partial migration of the Dead Sea Sparrow (Passer moabiticus) along the Great Rift Valley in Israel
Abstract Partial migration occurs when a population of animals contains both migratory and resident individuals. Following anthropogenic changes, the population of Dead Sea Sparrows (PasserExpand
A physiological perspective on the ecology and evolution of partial migration
TLDR
A deeper understanding of the physiological mechanisms mediating the causes and consequences of partial migration will not only provide novel insights into the ecology and evolution of migration in general, but will be vital to precisely modelling population trends and predicting range shifts under global change. Expand
Mapping Global Diversity Patterns for Migratory Birds
TLDR
Global patterns in the diversity of migratory birds indicate that bird migration is mainly a Northern Hemisphere phenomenon, and the asymmetry between the Northern and Southern hemispheres could not be predicted from the combined results of regional scale studies, highlighting the importance of a global perspective.

TLDR
This work has suggested that a social dominance system might be powerful enough to keep this migration system going; alternatively, a pooulation might be divided into two genetically distinct morphs with different preprogrammed Migratory behaviours. Expand
Frequency of migrants and migratory activity are genetically correlated in a bird population: evolutionary implications.
TLDR
It is found that the transition from migratoriness to residency should not only be driven by selection favoring resident birds but also by selection for lower migratory activity, which has profound implications for the evolution of migration. Expand
Evolutionary Precursors of Long-Distance Migration: Resource Availability and Movement Patterns in Neotropical Landbirds
TLDR
It is hypothesize that seasonal movements within the tropics predisposed these birds to migration out of the Tropics, and similarities in habitat use and diet between overwintering Nearctic migrants and closely related tropical residents are provided. Expand
Migration in South America: an overview of the austral system
Austral migrants are species that breed in temperate areas of South America and migrate north, towards or into Amazonia, for the southern winter. Migrations among these species are the most extensiveExpand
Genetic determination of partial migration in the European robin
TLDR
Partially migratory behavior, the occurrence of resident and migratory individ- uals in a population, has been reported in free-living birds and a heritability value of 0.52 was found was found under the experimental conditions. Expand
Population dynamics and partial migration of the european robin (Erithacus rubecula) in different habitats
TLDR
Unbalanced reproductive success of the resident and migratory morphs and arguments for conditionality show that partial migration in the European robin is a conditional strategy in which the migrants are making the best of a bad job. Expand

Abstract The south-west of Australia is a very old weather landscape with an extremely rich flora. The high degree of heterogeneity in the vegetation resulted in an extremely patchy distribution ofExpand
Birds of the Torres Strait: An Annotated List and Biogeographical Analysis
TLDR
Evidence is presented that competition has determined the nature of the avifauna on some Torres Strait islands, and the Torres Strait apparently represents a barrier to the movements of 28% of the species, including 38% the land birds, that are shared by Australia and New Guinea. Expand

For reasons that are still largely hidden, Australian birds have coped remarkably well with the recent invasion of humans. Over the last 200 years only one mainland species is thought to have goneExpand

A model has now been developed to estimate how inexperienced first-time migrants manage to reach their unknown winter quarters on the basis of inherited spatio-temporal programs. Expand
