Abstract

Applied ethology is a relatively new eld, which has grown rapidly in scope, geographical distribution and in€uence since the inception of the SVE/ISAE in 1966. There has been limited historical documentation of the eld, and students new to the area have little information available to understand the history of this science beyond what is found in journal publications.
To address this gap, several ISAE members and a‚liated researchers have compiled a book, ‘Animals and us: 50 years and more of applied ethology’ which documents and celebrates the rst 50 years of the ISAE. The book is written in four parts, including: (1) the history of the society and early pioneers; (2) research advances in behaviour; (3) global perspectives;
and (4) future directions for applied ethology research. Contributing authors include many leading researchers in the field- too numerous to mention here. This presentation will explore highlights from the text related to achievements, trends in research, collaborative studies with other elds, and new directions for both basic and applied research, all in an attempt to explain why ethologists are so passionate about their work, and why this eld remains more exciting now than ever before. �emes include human-animal interaction, personality, play
behaviour, cognition, multi-level selection, polyvagal theory, and the relationship between applied ethology and animal welfare science. We conclude that other animals, with their amazing and various forms and habits, may be the perfect human enrichment.
