COVER During the evolution of life, the ability to migrate and disperse became ever more sophisticated, enabling journeys thousands of kilometers long. Such travels shape a species' life history, which in turn shapes the ecology of the places visited. A special section beginning on page 775 considers some of the advances in our understanding of life on the move. Image: Carin Cain
