EthoNews is the official newsletter by the Ethologische Gesellschaft, published since 1979. The newsletter is in English and is sent by email to all members. EthoNews provides news about the activities of the society and includes valuable information for everyone who is interested in Behavioural Biology. The current volume (EthoNews 88) was released in December 2023. EthoNews 89 will be published in summer 2024.

Members who have not received EthoNews 88 may e-mail the secretary.

Members at any stage of their career are encouraged to contribute to EthoNews. We publish, for instance, abstracts of completed BSc, MSc, and PhD dissertations and provide a forum for early-career scientists to broadcast their profile. Members who supervise student dissertations are asked to encourage their students to do so. Furthermore, book reviews, news about members, opinion papers, or conference reports are welcome, too. The deadline for contributions to the next EthoNews is 31 May 2024.

All information or requests should be sent by e-mail to the secretary: info[at]
