Therefore, we aim at compiling an overview of the number of stop-over sites used by a variety of migrants, the distances between them and general habitat characteristics of these stop-over sites and in between. In a first step, we will focus on migratory birds, characterize differences in stopover site use according to taxonomic groups, migration bouts and migration pathways. This will be done with a systematic literature review and meta-analysis.
