Second Announcement
The goal of the Meeting is to promote and encourage scientific exchange among researchers, and students studying animal behavior. The meeting will provide participants the opportunity to present and discuss a broad spectrum of topics related to animal behavior, with research in species as diverse as insects and vertebrates and with varying approaches that include ecology, conservation, development, pharmacology, production, and health. The conference academic environment facilitates the exchange of ideas and the establishment of collaborative links between participants, and attracts many research groups from Uruguay and the region.

The third JUCA will include plenary lectures, symposia, free oral presentations by students and researchers, posters and social events. Plenary lectures will be given by the local researchers Martin Bollazi (School of Agriculture) and Ana Silva (IIBCE, School of Sciences, UdelaR), and guests from abroad Daniel Blumstein (University of California Los Angeles, USA), Walter Farina (Universidad de Buenos Aires, Argentina), Gabriela González-Mariscal (CINVESTAV-Universidad Autónoma de Tlaxcala, México), Agustín Orihuela (Universidad Autónoma del Estado de Morelos, México) and Marlene Zuk (University of California Riverside, USA).
