We live in a rapidly changing world where many species are declining, and this is especially true for migratory species. It is possible that changes in habitat, climate, and resource availability due to unprecedented human activity are inflating the costs associated with animal migration. At the same time, advancing technologies and analytical tools are making it possible to solve many of the important mysteries about migratory animals. Emily Cohen, an Assistant Professor and Principal Investigator of the Animal Migration Research Group at the University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science’s Appalachian Laboratory will talk about research to understand animal migration biology in the context of the full annual cycle and the inclusion of stopover and airspace habitats into conservation and management efforts for migratory species.
