Resource tracking within and across continents in long-distance bird migrants (Thorup et al., 2017)

Paper by scientists from Center for Macroecology, Evolution and Climate, UCPH: Graphic showing the migration routes of the common cuckoo, the red-backed shrike, and the thrush nightingale. Future climate change could potentially disrupt bird migration. The distribution of food resources will probably change significantly by the end of the century. Birds like the red-backed shrike and the thrush nightingale might have more difficulty tracking surplus greenness in the future.
