This final chapter looks back at the aims of this book, which has been to take a broad and integrated view of migration as a phenomenon, linking evolution with ecology and management, and theory with empirical research, embracing all the major migratory taxa. The intention has been to look forward rather than backwards looking at the exciting new possibilities that are currently opening up in the study of migration as a biological phenomenon and technologies. A number of broad themes and conclusions have emerged from this study. Migrants and migration are at risk. Climate change is just one of the threats to migrants. The rapid environmental changes that we are experiencing need to be seen as an opportunity to learn both about the drivers of migration and about effective approaches to conserving it.
