Songbirds and the Science of Animal Behavior

October 25 @ 1:00 pm - 2:15 pm EDT

SPOTLIGHT: Women in Science

Rindy Anderson, FAU, Biological Sciences, Associate Professor

Dr. Anderson studies behavioral ecology, which means that she seeks to understand how social, developmental, and environmental factors shape the ways that wild animals behave. In her talk, Dr. Anderson will speak about her research on the social behavior of songbirds and why birdsong is an excellent model system for studying how and why animals do what they do.
