Joe has a PhD in Applied Animal Ethology from the University of Illinois and has spent the last 25 years at the Western College of Veterinary Medicine teaching and investigating the behaviour of domestic livestock. Joe is fascinated by the striking similarities between humans and animals exemplified by behaviour they have in common. This includes memory of strangers, the formation of new social bonds, pain suppression, cheating, jealousy, a tendency to take short cuts and more. We may think that cognition and intelligence drive our actions but under the surface there are plenty of basic evolutionary principles at work. Join us for an entertaining look at ourselves and the everyday things we have in common with animals and birds.
Avoid a parking ticket while attending the SNS monthly meetings - consider these parking options on campus:
IMPORTANT NOTICE: Construction on the U. of Sask. campus - reduced pedestrian access to the Biology building
As a result of construction of the new Collaborative Science Research Building (CSRB) on the north side of the Biology Building the North entrance and walkway, opposite the Agriculture Parkade, and the pedestrian walkway from the Parkade to Biology are closed and will not reopen until April 2018. Traffic on the north side of the Biology Building has been rerouted. There is still access to the Agriculture Parkade, but from there you will need to access the Biology Building via Physics.
For the general meetings you might park east of the Physics Building. If you park in the Agriculture Parkade you will need to walk outside from Agriculture past Kirk Hall and past the John Mitchell building to the SE entrance to Physics and then through Physics to Geology to Biology buildings after descending one flight of stairs. See path shown by purple stars on the map.
Please contact any member of the SNS Board if you have questions or concerns about access to the Biology Building.
