Vol. 60, No. 1 | February 2015


The fifth annual ABS Outreach Fair, “Adventures in Animal Behavior,” will be held at the start of the 2015 meeting, on Wednesday, June 10th, from 2:00 – 6:00 pm at the Alaska Museum of Science and Nature. This event features interactive displays and activities related to the research of labs from around the country and is meant to engage the public in the excitement of animal behavior, from the methods and techniques used to study behavior, to major concepts and ideas in the field, to various applications of the research. In the past, 300-600 people have passed through this event; students and professors alike have had great fun communicating their research to a wide audience. If your lab is interested in participating, please contact Emilie Snell-Rood ([email protected]).
