This chapter examines how human-induced environmental changes affect migration. It explores how such changes affect conditions along the migration route, as well as the cues that are used in the timing of migration such as the celestial bodies and the planet's magnetic field. It emphasizes the effects of climate change, and provides an analysis on a research study carried out on the effects of rising temperatures on migratory birds and salmon. It looks into the role of phenotypic plasticity in the timing of migration, and how this is affected by climate change using the data gathered from these two taxa. It also investigates the relationship of migration to fitness and its suggestion that climate change could affect migration time by imposing selection on arrival time at breeding sites.
