HBES is a society for all those studying the evolution of human behavior. Scientific perspectives range from evolutionary psychology to evolutionary anthropology and cultural evolution; and the membership includes researchers from a range of disciplines in the social and biological sciences. Our membership is worldwide.
The two main activities of HBES are holding an annual conference and running a journal called Evolution and Human Behavior (EHB). The conference provides a forum to present and learn about current research in the field, and includes invited plenary talks from leading scientists in the field. This year, the Human Behavior and Evolution Society meeting will take place at the University of Missouri, May 27–30, 2015. Members of HBES receive a free subscription to EHB, a discount on the journal Human Nature, reduced registration at the annual HBES conference, and a biannual newsletter. Members are also eligible to apply for funds to host meetings on topics relevant to the goals and mission of HBES. Learn more about becoming a member of HBES.
