Abstract [en]

The Arctic is a unique testing ground for studying how birds navigate long distances, one of ornithology’s greatest mysteries. Birds use a number of different navigational cues, the Earth’s magnetic field, the landscape and the position of the Sun and stars. Studies on bird navigation will have implications forpreventing or containing animal based epidemics such as avian influenza.
