XI Congress of the Portuguese Ethological Society

CIBIO-InBIO, Research Centre in Biodiversity in Genetic Resources, hosts the 11th Congress of the Portuguese Ethological Society, on the 9th and 10th of October 2014. SPE congresses attract most researchers and students working on animal behaviour in Portugal, and are an opportunity to meet leading international invited speakers. The congress covers all research areas in animal behaviour, and talks are given in English.
This congress highlights the emerging area of behavioural genetics, with two invited speakers from this area: Nadia Aubin-Horth (Université Laval, Québec) and Adam Jones (Texas A&M University). Invited speaker Marta Moita (Champalimaud Neuroscience Programme, Lisbon) will talk about neuroscience of fear, and László Garamszegi (Estación Biológica de Doñana, Seville) about phylogenetic meta-analyses of behaviour.
