Bird Hormones and Bird Migrations
Analyzing Hormones in Droppings and Egg Yolks and Assessing Adaptations in Long-Distance Migration
PUBLISHER: John Wiley & Sons, Incorporated
Also available at Amazon.com
The reports presented in the second part of the volume expand the general understanding of migration over long distances. Three key issues in the search for adaptive syndromes are addressed: acquisition and use of endogenous resources, circadian rhythms, and adaptations in metabolism.
The papers included in this volume will provide access to techniques and methods that will result in more reliable studies and more useful data. The results of these two meetings are timely and important because environments are rapidly changing and we need the means to study the impact of these changes on the physiology of animals who are responding to these changes.
