Feather Flora of Migratory Shore Birds
Many bryophytes display infraspecific bipolar geographic disjunctions. In extreme northern and southern high latitude regions, where these bryophytes are abundant, there is a lack of wind connectivity. While migratory birds have long been assumed as the potential vector to explain the bipolar distribution, our project aims to provide the first concrete evidence for long distance dispersal by migratory birds.

Have you ever wondered what birds take with them as they travel across the globe?
