Sue Margulis Co-Edits New Book

Sue Margulis, PhD, chair of the animal behavior, ecology and conservation (ABEC) program, co-edited a new book, Exploring Animal Behavior in Laboratory and Field 2nd Edition. As a member of the Animal Behavior Society for more than 40 years, Margulis hopes this volume will be “used widely in the teaching of animal behavior.” 

The completion of  this book faced many unique challenges during the pandemic and a lot of credit goes to Margulis and all of the contributors of this volume for their efforts. Faced with difficult times, they made the best of their situation and a lot of the chapters were made to include guidance on how activities could be used in remote and online formats.
