Vagrancy is a phenomenon in biology whereby individual animals appear well outside their normal range; individual animals which exhibit vagrancy are known as vagrants.
Vagrancy is known to occur in birds, insects, mammals and turtles.
Vagrancy in insects is recorded from many groups - it is particularly well-studied in butterflies and moths, and dragonflies. /wiki/Vagrancy_(biology)   (251 words)

Born in 1787, Thomas Say, though obscure today outside the world of biology, was a brilliant naturalist, a leader of a generation of great biologists who explored, collected, and catalogued the wildlife of the western frontier of an expanding America.
Biology was a cozy world in those days.
But this drab flycatcher is highly migratory, breeding as far north as central Alaska, wintering as far south as central Mexico, and like many highly migratory species, it's prone to vagrancy. /features/bird_news?document=20041008_bird_news   (872 words)

 Essay or Coursework : Did the 'lower orders' generally benefit from the legislation-introduced by Tudor government to combat poverty and vagrancy?
The most immediate and pressing concern of government, for something more than a century was with the problem of vagrancy.
The majority believed that it was the fault of the individual and it was this view that led to the government dealing with beggars and vagrants punitively, they initially dealt with the symptoms rather than the cause.
This combined with the much larger one of poverty in general gradually evolved into the great Elizabethan poor laws of 1598-1601 and finally gave an impetus to that great outpouring of mercantile charity which more than anything else kept the problem within reasonable bounds. /i/22197.html   (373 words)

Patterns of vagrancy are insuf- ficiently known, but eastern specimens and re- ports appear to pertain mostly or entirely to occidentalis.
Notes.--Possibly a race of M. lanaien$i$ or other species in the complex; vocalizations and biology are unknown, but based on morphological distinctness, it is best regarded as a separate species.

A review of the literature revealed, “some characteristics of the population biology are simply not addressed.” With respect to herring, “spatial constraints are considered to be important to the diverse aspects of the population regulation problem.”
A better understanding of population regulation may be attributed to work in the fishery biology field.
A hypothesis concerning population regulation of herring in the oceans was discussed, posing questions pertaining to the number of populations, levels of absolute abundance and controlling mechanisms of interannual variability in abundance, and variability in spawning times between populations. /database.php?pageNum_psrp_bib=9&totalRows_psrp_bib=99   (2320 words)

Gallagher wasn't a bomb-throwing revisionist historian, she was a 50-year-old former biology teacher who expected her doctoral thesis to ''sit on a shelf,'' and she had stumbled into a subject both unexplored and painful.

 Black Codes History Summary
Laws requiring work were nothing new (vagrancy had been punished in England for centuries), and at least three Northern states—Illinois, Indiana, and Ohio—had antebellum statutes directed at African Americans.
Shortly after the Civil War's end, Southern legislatures, which were dominated by ex-Confederates during the presidential phase of Reconstruction (1864–1867), passed laws that for former slaves replaced the authority of slave owners with that of the state.
Southern white legislators, faced with what they saw as social unrest and economic ruin, embedded in their codes significant restrictions on African-American economic freedom. /history/americanhistory/black-codes-aaw-02   (596 words)

The species is seldom seen in North America south of Canada and Alaska, and much of the published information not directly related to its breeding biology focuses on vagrancy or identification.
Even though this jaeger spends more than three-fourths of its life at sea, nearly all information about its biology comes from its arctic breeding grounds.
