Offspring: Human Fertility Behavior in Biodemographic Perspective
Arts and Sciences. Her professional activities have included service as editor of Animal Behaviour, president of the Animal Behavior Society, vice president for conservation for the International Primatological Society, advisory board member for the National Science Foundation/Social, Behavioral and Economic Sciences, and, currently, chair of the Scientific Advisory Committee for the Integrated Nonhuman Primate Biomaterials and Information Resource.
Rodolfo A. Bulatao was staff director for the panel organizing the workshop. His research has covered psychosocial issues in population, fertility determinants, family planning program effectiveness, and program and reproductive health service costs. He previously directed the World Bank’s annual population projections and has worked on projections in various areas, including causes of death. He has also helped develop and evaluate population projects in developing countries. Dr. Bulatao was previously affiliated with the East-West Center and the University of the Philippines. He served on the National Research Council’s Committee on Population in 1983-1985 and on its Working Group on Population Growth and Economic Development. He has an M.A. in sociology from the University of the Philippines and a Ph.D. in sociology from the University of Chicago.
Judy L. Cameron is associate professor of psychiatry, neuroscience, and cell biology at the Oregon Primate Center. She studies the effects of exposure to mild everyday stresses on long-term health. Her laboratory work focuses on identifying the neural systems that respond to stress and understanding how changes in the functional activity of these systems modulate stress-responsive physiological systems, including behavior, neuroendocrine function, cardiovascular function, and glucose tolerance. The stresses studied include metabolic stresses (such as dieting, missing meals, and exercise) and psychosocial stress (such as being separated from familiar individuals and introduced to unfamiliar individuals). Her studies utilize nonhuman primates, and many combine experimental work with clinical work to understand the mechanisms underlying responses to chronic exposure to stress and the clinical implications. Dr. Cameron holds a Ph.D. from the University of Arizona.
Benjamin Campbell is assistant professor of anthropology at Boston University. He received his Ph.D. in anthropology from Harvard University in 1990, with additional postdoctoral training in demography at the Carolina Population Center. His intellectual interests are in the area of human evolutionary biology, namely, the implications of human evolution for the biology and behavior of living populations. His recent research focuses on human reproductive biology, including physiology and behavior, and its
