Stopover Ecology of Neotropical Migratory Birds

spacer
spacer
Abstract:The distribution of intact stopovers may be as important as the condition of individual stopover. We modeled migratory flights based on flight distance and direction to examine how nightly flights link stopovers into flyways. The resulting maps highlight portions of the landscape that are important for the continued success of migratory birds. Areas where many different migration senarios overlap are particularly important, as these areas wll support a diverse collection of migratory strategies and populations
