Unravelling processes between phenotypic plasticity and population dynamics in migratory birds

Jin Liu, Weipan Lei, Xunqiang Mo, Chris Hassell, Zhengwang Zhang & Tim Coulson
Populations can rapidly respond to environmental change via adaptive phenotypic plasticity, which can also modify interactions between individuals and their environment, affecting population dynamics. Bird migration is a highly plastic resource-tracking tactic in seasonal environments. However, the link between the population dynamics of migratory birds and migration tactic plasticity is not well understood. The quality of staging habitats affects individuals’ migration timing and energy budgets in the course of migration, and can consequently affect individuals’...
