Rainfall-induced changes in food availability modify the spring departure programme of a migratory bird
(The Royal Society, 2011-03-30)
Climatic warming has intensified selection for earlier reproduction in many organisms, but potential constraints imposed by climate change outside the breeding period have received little attention. Migratory birds provide ...
Challenging claims in the study of migratory birds and climate change
(Cambridge Philosophical Society, 2011-04-13)
Recent shifts in phenology in response to climate change are well established but often poorly understood. Many animals integrate climate change across a spatially and temporally dispersed annual life cycle, and effects ...
Linking fluctuations in rainfall to nonbreeding season performance in a long-distance migratory bird, Setophaga ruticilla
Research on long-distance migratory birds has yielded some of the strongest evidence that shifts in climate are changing ecosystem processes. Much of this work has focused on understanding whether rising temperatures on ...
Winter rainfall predicts phenology in widely separated populations of a migrant songbird
Climate change is affecting behaviour and phenology in many animals. In migratory birds, weather patterns both at breeding and at non-breeding sites can influence the timing of spring migration and breeding. However, ...
