Bird migration in a changing world

Prof Jenny Gill - School of Biological Sciences

Julian Study Centre lecture theatre, UEA

Every year, millions of birds undertake extraordinary migrations, crossing oceans and continents across the globe. In her talk, Jenny will explain how tracking individual birds on these journeys allows us to uncover links between different breeding and wintering grounds, and how changing environmental conditions in different parts of the range are driving population changes in these species, many of which are currently in sharp decline.

Part of the Norwich Science Festival.
