Fellow Creatures: Diversity in Animal Behaviour Science

Chronicling the history of diversity within Animal Behaviour Science and the Animal Behavior Society.

By Zazie  Todd, PhD

I have a new post on my Psychology Today blog, Fellow Creatures. It looks at some new historical research by Dr. Danielle N. Lee on the contributions of under-represented minorities to animal behaviour science, and the people who showed leadership in improving diversity and inclusion within the field.

The post includes the amazing contributions of Charles Henry Turner, the first African American to get a PhD from the University of  Chicago, through to the present-day scholars who are making their mark on the field itself and on diversity and inclusion within the discipline.
