After presenting some general ideas on the use of ringing data for analyses of effects of climate change on bird migration, we use the German datasets to investigate prospects and pitfalls in using data from bird ringing databases for analysing the effects of climate change on migrating birds. Finally, we discuss a few, exciting analyses that have already been done on this subject. III. CHANGES IN MIGRATION BEHAVIOUR A. Types of Changes The currently reported changes in bird migration behaviour relative to climate change can be ascribed to four main processes (Fiedler, 2003): (1) changes in migration status (like the proportion of non-migrants in a population), (2) changes in migration distance, (3) changes in migration direction, and (4) changes in timing and speed of migration.
