Kudos to Sue Margulis, PhD, recipient of the Animal Behavior Society’s Exceptional Service Award for 2020. The chair and professor of the biology and animal behavior, ecology and conservation programs at Canisius is being recognized for her sustained service contributions to the professional organization.
Most recently, Margulis served as chair of the society’s Education Committee (2016-2018). She is also a past secretary and parliamentarian of the organization.
Margulis will receive the Exceptional Service Award this summer at the 57th annual conference of the Animal Behavior Society, which is being held at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. She was nominated by three of her colleagues in the animal behavior field: Jeanne Altmann, PhD, professor emerita of ecology and evolutionary biology at Princeton University and Marulis’ former advisor at the University of Chicago; Dan Rubenstein, PhD, professor of ecology and evolutionary biology at Princeton University; and Robert Seyfarth, PhD, emeritus professor of psychology at the University of Pennsylvania.
