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 enthusiastically welcomes all participants to ABS 2023. 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.
