A new paper has just been published with colleagues at the Instituto Federal de Educação Ciência e Tecnologia do Pará and the Universidade Federal do Pará – including Cristovam Diniz, Nara Magalhães, Cristovam W.P. Diniz, and others – in which they show that hippocampal astrocytes are differentially affected during autumn migration in two long distance migratory shorebirds, a trans-Atlantic migrant, the semipalmated sandpiper (Calidris pusilla) and an overland migrant, the semipalmated plover (Charadrius semipalmatus).
