Articles on Animal Migration Published in BioScience

Via EurekAlert, I see that he February 2007 issue of BioScience, the monthly journal of the American Institute of Biological Sciences (AIBS), includes a special section on animal migration that features six articles exploring biologists’ understanding of species’ migrations.

The complete list of research articles in the February 2007 issue of BioScience is as follows:

  • What is Migration? Hugh Dingle and V. Alistair Drake
  • How Migrants Get There: Migratory Performance and Orientation. Susanne Åkesson and Anders Hedenström
  • Regulation of Migration. Marilyn Ramenofsky and John C. Wingfield
  • Migration, Patchiness, and Population Processes Illustrated by Two Migrant Pests. Robert A. Cheke and Jamie A. Tratalos
  • The Evolution and Genetics of Migration in Insects. Derek A. Roff and Daphne J. Fairbairn.
  • The Genetics and Evolution of Avian Migration. Francisco Pulido
  • Employment Preferences and Salary Expectations of Students in Science and Engineering. Dorceta Taylor
  • Adaptive Management of Forest Ecosystems: Did Some Rubber Hit the Road? Bernard T. Bormann, Richard W. Haynes, and Jon R. Martin

Fascinating stuff, which tells us volumes about the world in which we live…
