About this book

Comprehensive synthesis of the natural history of the birds of the temperate north who migrate south to winter habitats in the neotropics. Migration is explored from the perspective of the tropical, or nonbreeding, portion of the migrant life cycle. The transient and winter biology of migrants is examined, as is habitat and resource use, evolution, biogeography, demography, community relationships between temperate and tropical bird species, and Old World versus New World migration patterns.
