Climate change is occurring at different rates along the flyways of migratory birds, with typically rapid changes in the Arctic. Migratory birds breeding in the Arctic may be unable to advance migration timing to match this shift in environmental conditions, as they are constrained in time to prepare for an earlier migration or their wintering grounds do not provide cues that correctly predict the optimal timing of migration. Thomas Lameris tries to uncover the most important limiting factor for advancing timing of migration and reproduction for one Arctic migratory bird, the barnacle goose.
