2
Animal behavior then now
Niko Tinbergen 1907-1988
Karl von Frisch 1886-1982
Konrad Lorenz 1903-1989
3
Animal behavior then now
mechanism/ development
evolutionary theory/ population biology
1975
4
Animal behavior then now
  • Peter Klopfer (2002 - ABS newsletter)
  • 7 journals, 1st 50 papers 1950 vs 2000
  • little change
  • John Alcock (2003 ABS 50th anniversary)
  • animal behavior in texts
  • lt 1975 proximate, gt1975 ultimate

5
Animal behavior then now
  • Major trends over 30 yrs
  • research focus 1972-1977 vs. 1996-2001
  • Journal coverage
  • 1996-2001
  • who publishes what?

6
Obtaining the data
  • Relevant journals
  • Animal Behavior Abstracts (Camb. Sc. Abst.)
  • 228 journals animal behavior
  • Biological Abstracts (BIOSIS)
  • 219 journals, 414,739 papers, 1968-mid2002

7
Refining the data
  • Animal Behavior Abstracts
  • CORE journals all animal behavior
  • PRIORITY journals lt50 animal behavior
  • SELECTIVE journals gt50 animal behavior

Early handling increases lamb affinity for humans
Latent semantic analysis
Communicative cultures in cetaceans big
questions are unanswered, functional analyses are
needed
The maternal feeding display of domestic hens
is sensitive to perceived chick error
Estimating ancestral states of a communicative
display A comparative study of Cyclura rock
iguanas.
Does sociality drive the evolution of
communicative complexity? A comparative test
with ground- dwelling sciurid alarm calls
Responses of foraging hedgehogs to badger odour
Variation in chick-a-dee calls of a Carolina
chickadee population, Poecile carolinensis
identity and redundancy within note types

Future work
  • PRIORITY SELECTIVE journals
  • isolate animal behavior papers by keywords
  • Author affiliation data
  • geographic trends
  • Funding trends (NIH, NSF, society awards)
  • Automation
