"Observations of the migration patterns of Norwegian red deer show that some animals ride waves of greener vegetation as spring spreads across the landscape, whereas others jump ahead in anticipation of this higher-quality food".

The latest edition of the highly respected journal features a story covering their research which was recently published in American Naturalist.
