2007 Animal Behavior Society Annual Meeting

21-25 July 2007 in Burlington, VT, USA
The Animal Behavior Society's 44th Annual Meeting

We have an exciting schedule planned, including a Keynote Address by Bert Hölldobler (University of Würzburg and Arizona State University), and Fellows' Addresses by Elizabeth Adkins-Regan (Cornell University), Randy Nelson (Ohio State University) and Jan Komdeur (University of Groningen, The Netherlands). Symposia include "Evolutionary ecology of learning, memory & information use" (organized by Reuven Dukas and John Ratcliffe) and "Conservation behavior: From implications to applications" (organized by Colleen Cassady St. Clair).

The meeting will follow a similar format to those of previous years, with a welcoming picnic on Saturday and a closing banquet on Wednesday. The city of Burlington is located on the eastern shore of Lake Champlain between the Adirondack and Green Mountains. Burlington is a college town, home to the University of Vermont, with a lively art scene and corporate headquarters of Bruegger's Bagels, Lake Champlain Chocolates, and the Magic Hat Brewing Company. Best of all, it is the home of Ben & Jerry! If so inclined, you can go sports fishing and kayaking on Lake Champlain, head to the Lake Champlain Maritime Museum at Basin Harbor, seek out handcraft products, rent a bike and hit the bike trails, or go hiking.
