Advisory Board and Editors Animal Behavior

Nigel R. Andrew

My current research interests focus on the impacts that climate change will have on insect behaviour, ecology and physiology; insect community structure along environmental gradients; and insect-plant interactions.
I am currently President of the Ecological Society of Australia and Zoology Museum Curator, University of New England.

George E Bentley

Associate Professor of Integrative Biology and Neuroscience.
Director, UC Berkeley Field Station for the Study of Behavior, Ecology and Reproduction. Editorial Board of Domestic Animal Endocrinology, Frontiers in Systems and Integrative Pharmacology, Frontiers in Endocrinology

Susan M Bertram

My research addresses how genetic and environmental variation is maintained in sexually selected traits. My students and I use an animal behavior approach that incorporates tools from nutritional ecology, ecological physiology, and quantitative genetics. Our laboratory-based empirical research quantifies the phenotypic and genetically based variation in condition, life-history traits, and sexually selected traits and determines how this variation is influenced by diet and physiology.

Sarah F. Brosnan

I study the evolution of decision-making and economic behavior across the primate Order. I am particularly interested in how non-human primates make decisions, especially about cooperation, and how they are altered based on social and ecological contexts.

I am currently an Assistant Professor of Psychology, Philosophy & Neuroscience at Georgia State University and direct the Laboratory for Comparative Economic & Behavioral Studies. I am on the editorial board of several open access journals.

Jean Clobert

Senior Researcher (DR hc, CNRS), Station d’Ecologie Experimentale du CNRS à Moulis. Member of the Acamedia Europaea.

Marcel Marcel Dicke

Professor of Entomology and Head of the Laboratory of Entomology of Wageningen University (NL), Rhodes Visiting Professor at Cornell University (USA) and elected member of the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences.

Dany Garant

Professor of Ecology in the Department of Biology at Université de Sherbrooke. Associate editor of Molecular Ecology.

Mark E. Hay

Hay is a marine ecologist known for his work on community ecology and chemical ecology. He is the Harry and Linda Teasley Professor of Biology and co-director of the Center for Aquatic Chemical Ecology. He is recipient of the Cody Award (recognizes outstanding scientific achievement in Oceanography, Marine Biology, and Earth Science), a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Sciences, and the Class of 1934 Distinguished Professor Award (Georgia Tech’s highest faculty award).

Dezene P. W. Huber

Current work in our lab includes mountain pine beetle functional genomics, tree defenses against herbivores and pathogens, insect chemical ecology, bark beetle cold tolerance physiology, stored pest feeding deterrents, weevil foraging behavior, and aquatic insect biodiversity and food web research.

We conduct our research across multiple scales and we use available tools – established and cutting-edge – to search for answers to complex entomological and ecological questions.

Magnus L Johnson

I am a diving marine biologist with eclectic interests including crustacean biology and fisheries, fisheries management generally, krill swimming behaviour, cleaner fish, diver interactions with reefs and the eyes of shrimps. I work in the Centre for Environmental and Marine Sciences at the University of Hull. We have about 150 undergraduates and 12 or so postgraduate students. I am a member of the UK Scientific Diving Supervisory Committee.

Laurent Keller

Professor of Evolutionary Biology and Director of the Department of Ecology and Evolution, University of Lausanne

B Duncan X Lascelles

After graduating from the veterinary program at the University of Bristol, U.K., with honors, Dr. Lascelles completed a PhD in aspects of pre-emptive/perioperative analgesia at the University of Bristol. After an internship there, he completed his surgical residency at the University of Cambridge, U.K. and then a Fellowship in Oncological Surgery at Colorado State University. He is currently Professor in Small Animal Surgery and Pain Management at North Carolina State University.
