Behavioural and Physiological Reactions to Environmental Variation in Bird Migration: a Review

  • Conference paper
Avian Migration

Abstract

Many features of the migration of passerine birds are endogenously programmed and have a strong genetic basis. At least in inexperienced migrants, the general seasonal course of migration is endogenously controlled, such as the onset, the temporal pattern, the direction of migration and the seasonal pattern of energy stores. This leads to the conclusion that an endogenous spatiotemporal migration programme guides inexperienced migrants from their place of birth to their first winter quarters (summarized in Berthold 1996).
