2018 Keynote Speaker: Dr. Gerlinde Höbel
Dr. Gerlinde Höbel is an Associate Professor of Behavioral Ecology within the Department of Biological Sciences at UW-Milwaukee. She teaches courses in ecology, herpetology and canine behavior. Her research focuses on communication and sexual selection in amphibians. She is particularly interested in the strategies individuals use to compete for mates within chorus settings, which represent socially and sensory highly complex environments. She has authored or co-authored 47 journal articles and book chapters, and currently serves as associate editor of the journal Evolution. She was also one of the co-hosts of the 55th Annual Conference of the Animal Behavior Society, held at UW-Milwaukee in August 2018.
