About the Animal Behaviour Section


The Animal Behaviour Section comprises scientists from varies fields of the behavioural sciences: from behavioural ecology, endocrinology and genetics over neuro-ethology, chronobiology, bio-acoustics and communication up to conservation biology and human-ethology.

Within the section, we inform each other about the latest news, offer advice to the DZG executive board, participate in the organisation of the yearly DFG meeting, organise workshops and graduate meetings and much more. The Animal Behaviour Section cooperates closely with the Ethologischen Gesellschaft

Everyone being interested can join the section. It would however be good to also become a member of the DZG. If you are interested in joining us, just send an email with your address to one of the section speakers.
