This course introduces migration in animals, with special reference to birds and also introduces the integrated biological themes of movement, selection and homeostasis.
Movement is a facet of the life of animals and many migrate as part of their life cycle. The familiar movements of migratory birds follow a seasonal pattern and individuals complete round trips between different geographical locations. Figure 1 is a word cloud that represents concepts associated with migration.
