Save the behavioral ecologists

recent Caro & Sherman review in TREE: Endangered species and a threatened discipline: behavioural ecology

"Behavioural ecologists often see little connection between the current conservation crisis and the future of their discipline. This view is myopic because our abilities to investigate and interpret the adaptive significance and evolutionary histories of behaviours are increasingly being compromised in human-dominated landscapes because of species extinctions, habitat destruction, invasive species, pollution, and climate change."
