As usual, I had a fantastic time at ABS this year. I got to meet Frans de Waal, whose book Our Inner Ape was one of the reasons that I became a scientist. I can’t wait to read his new book, which he signed for me 🙂
I saw many fantastic talks and met inspiring scientists, especially Alison Bell, Molly Morris, Oscar Rios, Emilie Snell-Rood, and mayor Phil Stoddard. My favorite talks were from Meredith Steck, Malcom Rosenthal, PA Green, and Ria Ghai. I also got great feedback on my talk (plasticity and evolution of mating behavior) and poster (using guppies to teach evolution). Thanks ABS for another fun conference filled with lovely inspiring people.
