May 20: Animal Behavior: Bird Songs and Monkey Business

Featured Speakers: Rindy Anderson, Ph.D., Assistant Professor, Biological Sciences, and Kate M. Detwiler, Ph.D., Associate Professor of Anthropology, Florida Atlantic University Schmidt College of Science

Explore the interesting aspects of animal behavior in monkeys and songbirds. First, meet Dr. Anderson and her studies on behavioral ecology, how and why animals behave as they do. Learn more about her research on the social behavior of songbirds in both the field and in the laboratory, and why birdsong can help us understand the social behavior and communication of animals, including our own. Then, discover new research from the Primatology Lab at FAU with Dr. Detwiler that focuses on African monkey species and their forest edge habitat.

In partnership with Florida Atlantic University Schmidt College of Science.
