She is the author and editor of several widely cited and reviewed books,[2][3] including the textbook The Study of Animal Behaviour.

Huntingford has served as president of the Fisheries Society of the British Isles,[4] the Association for the Study of Animal Behaviour, and the World Council of Fisheries Societies.[5] She is Emeritus Professor of Functional Ecology at the University of Glasgow.

Awards and Honours[edit]

Huntingford was elected to the Royal Society of Edinburgh in 1996 in the discipline of organismal and environmental biology.[6]

Huntingford has presented as an invited lecturer in several named lecture series. Huntingford was awarded the 2001 Tinbergen Lecture by the Association for the Study of Animal Behaviour.[7] She also delivered the 2012 Fisheries Society of the British Isles (FSBI) Jack Jones Lecture.[8]

Huntingford has been honoured with several major academic awards, including the 2006 ASAB Medal [9] and the 2013 FSBI Beverton Medal.[10]

She was awarded an Honorary Doctorate from the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences in 2009.[11]
