About this Research Topic
With recent technological advancements facilitating the recording of high-resolution long-term movement data, there has been a substantial increase in animal movement studies over the last decade or so. However, the mechanisms behind various movement phenomena such as foraging, dispersal and migration, and the resulting patterns that emerge - requires further insights. Moreover, a better understanding of important ecological processes pertaining to movement is sought, such as navigational strategies, encounter rates and animal space use under context specific scenarios.
This Research Topic aims to compile original, perspectives and review articles that provide further analyses on animal movements, at either the individual or population level, at any spatial or temporal scales, and for all types of taxa, whether they be terrestrial, aquatic or volant. Both theoretical and empirical studies are welcomed, using any analytical techniques e.g., mathematical modelling or statistical analyses based on observed movement data.
