Using complete phylogenies of contemporary carnivores and primates, the first comparative test is presented showing that high trophic level, low population density, slow life history and small geographical range size are all significantly and independently associated with a high extinction risk in declining species.
Primate Conservation Biology
This work integrates theoretical advances with practical management priorities to give scientists and policymakers the tools they need to help keep these species from disappearing forever.

An integrative theoretical framework is suggested that incorporates the tools that were developed to overcome similar methodological problems in psychology to facilitate a robust and unified approach in the study of animal personality.

Deviations from these patterns by a unimale group indicate that male reproductive strategies may also play a role in habitat selection, and supports hypothesis 4.

A day range model is presented and predictions against a comprehensive analysis of mammalian day range are compared to show faunivores have the longest day ranges and steepest body mass scaling and herbivores show intermediate and low scaling exponents.

This study investigates patterns of predation in Papio baboon populations across Africa. Using anecdotal reports collated from the primate and predator literature, the following analyses are…
How species respond to multiple extinction threats
The results show that a species' vulnerability to local extinction can be highly variable and is likely to depend on both threat type and biology, and multivariate analyses suggest that different mechanisms of decline are associated with each type of threat.
