Bird migration is a well-researched phenological event. However, few studies in North America have investigated the effects of climate change and extreme weather on the relationships of migratory avian species and their seasonal resources. This is a critical gap in knowledge that limits our ability to prioritize management and conservation applicat

About the Editors

Dr. Eric M. Wood is a postdoctoral quantitative ecologist in the Conservation Sciences Program at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology. His research investigates the impacts of land use and climate change on species' interactions with their environment. Dr. Wood has over 15 years experience in avian ecology, exploring questions related to spring and fall migration and the breeding period to better understand species-habitat interactions, community and landscape ecology, ecosystem services, and phenology.

Dr. Jherime L. Kellermann is an assistant professor in the Natural Sciences Department at the Oregon Institute of Technology and science coordinator at Crater Lake National Park Science and Learning Center. He has nearly 20 years of experience in research and conservation of birds and their habitats in America's Pacific Northwest, Southwest, and Hawaii, as well as the Caribbean and Latin America. His research interests include seasonal dynamics of animal migration and habitat ecology, the synchrony or mismatch of interacting species' phenology associated with climate variation and change, and how changing phenology may impact ecosystem services.
