Section Behavioural Biology


In the Behavioural Biology Section scientists are organised who are interested in a wide variety of topics in the field of animal behaviour: From behavioural endocrinology, neuroethology and behavioural genetics to behavioural ecology, bioacoustics and chronobiology to communication, species conservation biology and human ethology.

The tasks of the section are manifold: informing members about current events, supporting the executive board of the DZG, actively contributing to the annual meetings, organizing Graduate Meetings and many others. In addition, the Section of Behavioural Biology closely collaborates with the Ethological Society.

In particular, we would like to support young scientists and provide space for exchange, discussion and networking. If you have any wishes or suggestions for events, workshops, symposia and so forth, please do not hesitate to contact the section speakers. We are looking forward to suggestions, ideas and impulses!

All interested people are cordially invited to become a member of the section. It is desirable that the members of the section are also members of the DZG. You are welcome to just attend the section meetings and to get to know more about our activities. The meetings usually take place during the annual meeting of the DZG.

If you want to become a member, you simply need to send an e-mail with your address to the respective section speaker.

Current information and dates of our section are available on our homepage. Moreover, there is the possibility to subscribe to the mailing list for further information, announcements and job offers.
