Translational Behavioral Biology: A Fearful Perspective
Apr 11, 2024, 12:30 pm1:30 pm
Guyot 10
Open to public



Event Description

Biomedical scientists realize that fundamental research can be ‘translated’ into clinical success. Many behavioral biologists engage in translational research with a clear wildlife conservation benefit. The field of conservation behavior is explicitly translational in that it translates fundamental advances in behavioral biology to help conserve or manage wildlife populations. I will illustrate how knowledge of antipredator behavior could be used to improve conservation and wildlife management outcomes. My goals are to stimulate others to identify translational benefits in their research so as to ultimately help humans better coexist with wildlife. A broader goal is to illustrate how academic knowledge can be applied in non-traditional ways.
