Welcome to the Animal Studies Research Collaborative (ASRC) at Eckerd College!

The Animal Studies Research Collaborative (ASRC) is a research organization that focuses on studying animal behavior, welfare, communication, and perceptions across a variety of species, as well as human-animal interactions and relationships. While the ASRC is based out of Eckerd College, we collaborate with many zoological facilities and organizations within the animal world.

The ASRC includes a dedicated group of professors & students based out of Eckerd College in St. Petersburg, FL. Learn more about our research collaborative by visiting our "About Us" page, and learn more about the individual faculty and their labs by visiting their pages.
