Lars-Anders Hansson teaches aquatic ecology at Lund University and also leads a team at the Centre for Animal Movement Research (CAnMove) which aims to develop techniques, such as nano-scaled tracers, to track individual micro-organisms such as zooplankton in order to answer key questions about migratory behaviour. Susanne Akesson teaches evolutionary animal ecology and ornithology at Lund University. In 2005 she was elected as a Fellow of the Royal Institute of Navigation (FRIN) and since 2008 has been the coordinator of the Linneaus program Centre for Animal Movement Research (CAnMove) at Lund University financed by a ten year grant from the Swedish Research Council and Lund University.
[T]he book is written in an accessible style and laid out suitably so that any scientifically literate reader interested in the subject should be able to share in the excirement of this rapidly developing field without undue effort. * Chris Hewson, BTO News * [T]his book covers diverse topics that are seldom covered or totally omitted in any other books on animal movement. It is clearly written, includes a good glossary, and contains many relevant textboxes ... Undergraduate and graduate students, as well as more mature scientists, working on different aspects of animal movement, would benefit from the excellent introductory text, the presentation of important case studies, the coverage of advanced methodological developments, and the description of intricate processes and dynamics in this book. Overall, this contribution scales up our understanding of animal movement, paving the way for exciting new discoveries on the causes, mechanisms, patterns, and consequences of animal movement. * Ecology * This book is a good update and expansion of a fast-moving area ... The result is an in-depth but well-explained description of the pattern of animal migration and dispersal. Recommended. * CHOICE * Possibly the most interesting aspect of this text is the breadth of research discussed. The book is highly relevant to academic researchers and those working in animal biology and conservation, but will also be very engaging for lay people who can decipher scientific writing...This book aptly highlights what is a complex and fascinating area of research, making it both a suitable and enjoyable read for anyone seeking an introduction to the field of animal movement, or a compact synthesis for those already familiar with the field. * Mark Hall, Austral Ecology *
