This accessible introduction to the science of bird migration--the only such book currently available--details the incredible stamina and navigation skills exhibited by migrating birds, as well as the field's latest ideas, hypotheses, experimental results, and methods. Twelve fascinating chapters cover key topics such as the different types of migration, migratory behavior, physiological adaptations, orientation mechanisms and navigation, and conservation needs of migrants. Written by one of the field's leading researchers, this book will instill a new appreciation and understanding of bird migration studies in birdwatchers, naturalists, professional ornithologists, ecologists, conservationists, and students.
