Professor Peter Narins has been elected president of the International Society for Neuroethology, a post he will hold until 2016. The society is an organization of more than 500 scientists from around the world whose research in neuroethology -- a relatively young science that became a distinct research field in the late 1960s and early 1970s -- is uncovering the neural mechanisms underlying natural behaviors.

Narins is a distinguished professor of integrative biology and physiology, as well as ecology and evolutionary biology. His most recent research focuses on how climate change affected the size and mating behaviors of the coqui frog in Puerto Rico over a period of 25 years. He received his B.S., M.S. and Ph.D. from Cornell University. Narins has been awarded many honors, including the Guggenheim Award and the Fulbright Award. Learn more about Narins here.
