How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more
How individuals interact between each other? How a society is structured to face challenges induced by natural selection (group cohesion, hierarchical structure, etc.)? These are some of the questions currently considered through multilevel and multi-methodological analyses (social networking and referential statistics) to understand the structural processes in animal societies, the ecological and evolutionary consequences over the structures themselves and their emerging characteristics.

This Special Feature in Methods in Ecology and Evolution and Journal of Animal Ecology is meant to be a continuation of the Animal Social Network Symposium that took place at the XXXVIII Sunbelt 2018, with the presentation of new concepts and tools for Social Network Analysis (SNA) applied in different topics of animal research. With this joint special feature, Sebastian Sosa, Mathieu Lihoreau, David Jacoby and Cédric Sueur are willing to promote the multidisciplinary approach of SNA in animal research, bringing together researchers from different fields and working with a large variety of biological models (plants, insects, primates) to showcase the latest developments in SNA techniques and integrate them into a general analytical framework. It is intended to provide the readership with a cross-disciplinary overview of state-of-the-art of SNA tools in animal research and delineate hot topics for the decade to come. We are soliciting original research capturing novel methodological developments or applications of social network theory to new empirical questions. These papers should be addressing outstanding questions in fields that include (but not restricted to) evolutionary ecology, behavioural ecology, disease and parasite biology, wildlife conservation, and theory. Manuscripts should be submitted in the usual way through the Journal of Animal Ecology or Methods in Ecology and Evolution websites. Submissions should clearly state in the cover letter accompanying the submission that you wish to be considered for publication as part of this Special Feature. Pre-submission enquiries are not necessary, but any questions can be directed to : admin@journalofanimalecology.org or coordinator@methodsinecologyandevolution.org The deadline for submission is: Monday 5 August.
Thanks to INSNA, William Hoppitt, Mathieu Lihoreau, Cédric Sueur and I will organize a symposium in the XXXVIII Sunbelt Conference from June 26 to July 1, 2018. This symposium, entitled ‘Social Network Analysis in life science’ mainly focuses on an inter-disciplinary perspective. We are willing to involve researchers from different biological fields (ethology, ecology…), thematic (social transmission, epidemiology…), biological models (plants, insects, primates…) and using different Social Networking techniques (one-mode network, NBDA, two-mode network…), to give them the opportunity to discuss and share their knowledge. If you are interested, please contact us before February 1 2018, and follow our page to keep updated with all the news related to this symposium. We would also be grateful if you could share this information.
Archived project
Prof. Cédric Sueur, Dr. Ivan Puga-Gonzalez and I, Dr. Sebastian Sosa, are glad to announce the official opening of the special issue ‘Social networks analysis in primates, a multilevel perspective’ in the journal Primates. The current deadline is 15th January but it can be postponed.
