MIGRATION ECOLOGY OF THE AQUATIC WARBLER


The Aquatic Warbler is a small, globally-threatened species of sedge meadows in continental Europe that global population declined by 90% during the last century. Basic knowledge about migration ecology and various potential threats are essential for efficient conservation management of the global population.


We examine autumn migration of the Aquatic Warbler in regard to sex and age, across a wide geographical range. We also determine concetration of common pollutants (e.g. mercury, Hg) in the birds feathers.
