MEMBERSHIP AND SUBSCRIPTION OPTIONS
Subscription to Behavioral Ecology is no longer required to be a member of the International Society for Behavioral Ecology. Everyone now has the option to join the society without taking a subscription to the journal. Such memberships will receive the Newsletter and announcements for the biennial conference. For those who wish to continue their subscription to Behavioral Ecology as well as be a member of the society, this option is also available. Information on how to join the ISBE can be found here and Oxford University Press’ Behavioral Ecology webpage (beheco.oupjournals.org).

DONATED SUBSCRIPTION PROGRAMME
Please help colleagues in need. Every donation will help increase scientific contacts across the world. In a time when nationalism is again raising its ugly head, this is more important than ever. For details, see the advertisement on the inside back cover of Behavioral Ecology volume 12(4).

JOB AND STUDENTSHIP POSTINGS
As the newsletter is only published twice a year, it is unsuitable to publish current job or student postings. Instead, these are published on the society’s webpage (here):
If you wish to post an advertisement for faculty, postdoc, graduate student, or field assistant positions in your lab or department, please send these to Mariella Herberstein (m.herberstein@bio.mq.edu.au).

WORKSHOPS AND MEETINGS Conferences of other societies or workshops that may be of interest to the Society’s members can be advertised on the Newsletter website (contact Mariella Herberstein for posting). Titles and dates of conferences are listed here.
