thesisposted on 2016-01-01, 00:00 authored by M Zhao
This thesis uses relatively large intra-specific (Ruddy Turnstone [Arenaria interpres]) and inter-specific (seven shorebird species along the East Asian-Australasian Flyway) datasets to analyse thus far largely unexplored aspects of the migratory behaviour of these shorebirds. It identfied that body size and season played a key role in shaping migratory behaviours.
