54th Annual Conference of the Animal Behavior Society
University of Toronto Scarborough Campus, Canada
June 12-16, 2017

The Animal Behavior Society was founded in 1964 to promote the study of animal behavior in the broadest sense, including studies using descriptive and experimental methods under natural and controlled conditions. Current members' research activities span the invertebrates and vertebrates, both in the field and in the laboratory, and include experimental psychology, behavioral ecology, neuroscience, zoology, biology, applied ethology, and human ethology as well as many other specialized areas.

The Animal Behavior Society and the University of Toronto Scarborough enthusiastically welcomes all participants to ABS 2017. We believe that scientific excellence flourishes in an environment that where a diversity of voices and perspectives are freely expressed, in an environment of mutual respect for the dignity and worth of every participant. We look forward to a meeting where all can learn and be heard.

Conference Hosts: Maydianne Andrade and Andrew Mason
Local Organizing Committee: Darryl Gwynne, John Ratcliffe, Helen Rodd, Locke Rowe, Marla Sokolowski
Program Officer: Mark E. Hauber
Program Officer-Elect: Jonathan Pruitt
