Welcome to the Applied Animal Behavior section of the Animal Behavior Society.


What is Applied Animal Behavior?


The field of Applied Animal Behavior specializes in the behavior of companion animals (i.e behavior modification, welfare and enrichment), the behavior of farm, zoo and laboratory animals (i.e animal management and welfare) and studies of the behavior of wild animals when these studies are relevant from an applied perspective, (i.e. wildlife management, pest management or nature conservation) as well as methodological studies.

Animal behaviorists are often educated in a variety of disciplines, including psychology biology, zoology or animal sciences. A professional applied animal behaviorist has demonstrated expertise in the principles of animal behavior, in the research methods of animal behavior, in the application of animal behavior principles to applied behavior problems and in the dissemination of knowledge about animal behavior through teaching and research.
