Animals travel in their billions all over the Earth, sometimes - like the Arctic Tern - covering global distances. Animal migration represents a masterpiece of biological adaptation and programming.

The general objective of the Migration Ecology Research Group at the Department of Animal Ecology, Lund University, is to forward, by research and teaching, the understanding of adaptive values and evolutionary possibilities and limitations in animal migration, -flight, -orientation and energetics.
