Thomas Alerstam is the Editor-in-Chief of Journal of Avian Biology since 2001, but this special issue has been produced without his knowing. The 18 papers have been co-authored by 71 different scientists, and they together cover a wide range of topics, but for natural reasons mainly within the field of bird migration. It is editors’ hope that the papers to some degree will reflect the breadth of research in which Thomas has been active, and give some inspiring insights into the field of bird migration and ecology. All papers will be free for the whole year.
