Migrant species express wide varieties of movement strategies that closely mirror patterns of resource distribution. Resources can vary predictably in space and time (e.g., seasonal peaks of productivity in temperate regions) or can be unpredictable in one or both dimensions. Evolution of migration strategies and the underlying physiological and behavioral mechanisms are therefore diverse, but similarities have been noted. To understand how migrants respond to environmental cues, we focus on… CONTINUE READING
