In autumn, the duration of nocturnal flights of thrushes under head winds is much shorter than under the tail winds. In our opinion, it allows thrushes to use two alternative strategies of migration in autumn: • long nocturnal flights under tail winds with subsequent long stopovers; •Cited by: 3.

autumn migration averaged slightly higher. My data on the ab- solute altitude at which passerine migration takes place differ markedly from these estimates. My hourly means for clear nights are all below 1, ft. For every hour of the night, more than 60% of the passerine migrants were below 2, ft.

First, spring and autumn migrations placed before and after the breeding season, respectively, differ in context. Spring migration is relevant for the timely arrival of migrants at the breeding grounds, while the autumn migration is essentially for the wintering habitat with an adequate food by: 9.

Given the importance of arrival time in the breeding area and the relatively short period available to reproduce (particularly at high latitudes), it is expected that birds reduce spring migration duration to a greater extent than autumn migration, assuming that pressure to arrive into Cited by: 3.

The main purpose of this article is a brief presentation of the most crucial stages of a research process concerning migration of foreign workers in Greece. The research (within my doctoral studies at Sussex University, Brighton, UK) was undertaken for a period of almost nine months () in Athens, Greece.

The date of migration initiation (F 1, 30 =p =R 2 = ), migration midpoint (F 1, 30 =p =R 2 = ), migration termination (F 1, 30 =p =R 2 = ), and the duration of migration (F 1, 30 =p =R 2 = ) did not vary due to individual model classification (single- or double-sigmoid).

We analyzed our expression profiles to find out whether genes in selected categories had coordinated expression patterns, and to obtain quantitative data on the total pattern of gene expression for the different categories.

We discuss the results for genes found in some of the categories, but the full dataset is presented in Additional data by: numbers passing. This method permitted direct quantitative observa- tions on night migration for the first time, but it is usable only on clear, moonlit nights, so has limited application to the problem reviewed here.

Still more recently, Sutter (a,b) established the value of radar. Recent years have witnessed growing interest in a series of issues related to migration, including identity formation and change, the role of social capital and social networks, ethnic discrimination, racism and xenophobia, socio-political participation and mobilisation and the complex nature of the causal mechanisms linked to migration - issues that are better highlighted and investigated.

Moon watching is a method of quantifying nocturnal bird migration by focusing a telescope on the moon and recording observations of flying birds silhouetted against the lunar surface. Although simple and well-established, researchers use moon watching infrequently due in part to the hours of late night observation it requires.The average density of nocturnal passerine migration (migration traffic rate) comprised 14 birdsnight -1 km -1 in September and birdsnight -1 km -1 in October.Migration Books Showing of 2, The Warmth of Other Suns: The Epic Story of America's Great Migration (Hardcover) by.
