This chapter introduces the book and puts it into the context of how animals move by addressing different modes of movement, from sedentary to highly mobile organisms. The chapter also addresses costs and benefits of being mobile, as well as how energy can be translocated, both at the individual level and in an evolutionary perspective, in order to optimize the performance. The introductory chapter also provides an overview of the different sections of the book: chapters 2–4 discuss large-scale patterns of movement; chapters 5–8 look at movement strategies and adaptations; and chapters 9–13 examine the mechanisms and codes of navigations and movement.

Keywords:   animal movement, migration, costs, benefits, sedentary, mobile, motile
