Current selection for lower migratory activity will drive the evolution of residency in a migratory bird population

Pulido, Francisco; Berthold, Peter;

Global warming is impacting biodiversity by altering the distribution, abundance, and phenology of a wide range of animal and plant species. One of the best documented responses to recent climate change is alterations in the migratory behavior of birds, but the mechanis... View more
