The Association for the Study of Animal Behaviour (ASAB) is an academic society

What we do

  • We own Animal Behaviour, the leading international scientific journal in its field.
  • We promote the study of animal behaviour by holding conferences and funding research.
  • We care about animals and our Ethical Committee promotes the ethical treatment and conservation of animals.
  • We encourage the teaching of animal behaviour in schools through our Education Committee.

The ASAB Handbook

We are writing an ASAB Handbook which will include more information about our policies and how the society functions. When it is ready, you will be able to download the handbook here.
