Organizer: Eileen Hebets, ABS Second President-Elect
This symposium features outstanding graduate student research, with an award for the best paper, and is a highlight of ABS meetings. The session honors Dr. Warder Clyde Allee (1885–1955), an animal behavior researcher who was very influential in the development and direction of animal behavior research in the 20th century. He was elected to the National Academy of Sciences in 1951 and ranks among the leading twentieth century ecologists, especially for his work in behavioral and animal ecology. In the 202020 ABS Allee Session, students will present their research to ABS members and talk judges. Click here for participation information.

In keeping with the true spirit of the first edition, the editors have solicited submissions from ABS members. We have expanded the scope of coverage and reorganized the way in which activities are presented. The volume will be divided into four main sections: Describing Behavior, Theory of Behavior, Application of Behavior, and Communicating Science. The aim of this workshop is to demonstrate and discuss 6 chapters, representing multiple sections of the book. Not only with this provide us with an opportunity to collect feedback on the chapters, but it will also offer a preview of what the volume offers. Chapters provide variations that permit use in labs, standard class periods, or online learning. A Q&A will follow the recorded presentations. Two chapter authors are paired in each session to discuss their chapters.
