Despite the wealth of research on animal migration, few studies have attempted to integrate the results within an overarching theoretical framework. This graduate-level textbook considers the ecosystem-level dynamics of migration, going beyond the traditional bias towards birds to include insects, fish, mammals, and even human pastoralists. It looks at exciting new avenues of research opened by computer technology, the conservation and management of migratory species, and the threat they face from climate change.
