SBE 2020: Submission Detail

ID Number: 293
Title: Improving the capability of SBE to support behavioral research with diverse species through shared review in the Office of Multidisciplinary Activities
Lead Author: Fragaszy, Dorothy M
Abstract: Contemporary behavioral research is more species-diverse than the current programmatic structure of SBE recognizes. A program for Integrative Comparative Studies within the Office of Multidisciplinary Activities of SBE would support a vibrantly interdisciplinary review process where the research topic, rather than species, guides where research proposals are handled. The implications for future research within and across the disciplines is profound: Including studies with other species in the research portfolios of programs with an historically exclusively human focus provides NSF with an integrative conceptual framework to unite humans with the rest of the living world. This can transform our view of human capabilities and of our place in the world.
