Human Behavior and Evolution Society | HBES




History

HBES was founded October 29, 1988 at the University of Michigan. Participants in a national conference on Evolution, Psychology and Psychiatry (sponsored by the University of Michigan Evolution and Human Behavior Program) voted to create the organization, decide on a name, elect the first officers, and create a constitution for the Society. The Society was formed to promote the exchange of ideas and research findings using evolutionary theory, including studies of animal behavior, to better understand human nature.
