Animal Migration & Movement

Several faculty members in the Department of Biology undertake field and/or lab-based research to advance knowledge of how and why animals migrate and move across space and time, which is especially relevant in this era of rapid ecosystem change. The disciplinary focus of the group is diverse, and spans across ecology, physiology, environmental science, evolution, and genetics.
