  • Biology, Medicine
  • American journal of physical anthropology
  • 1 July 2009
Previous research has shown that both environmental and historical factors influence the taxonomic structure of animal communities; yet, the relative importance of these effects is not known forExpand

The phylogenetic structure of primate communities: variation within and across continents
Aim  Our goals are: (1) to examine the relative degree of phylogenetic overdispersion or clustering of species in communities relative to the entire species pool, (2) to test for across-continentExpand

Testing Bergmann's rule and the resource seasonality hypothesis in Malagasy primates using GIS-based climate data.
We tested four major hypotheses on the ecological aspects of body mass variation in extant Malagasy strepsirrhines: thermoregulation, resource seasonality/scarcity, resource quality, and primaryExpand

The climatic niche diversity of Malagasy primates: A phylogenetic approach
Background: Numerous researchers have posited that there should be a strong negative relationship between the evolutionary distance among species and their ecological similarity. Alternative evidenceExpand

Host Longevity and Parasite Species Richness in Mammals
Hosts and parasites co-evolve, with each lineage exerting selective pressures on the other. Thus, parasites may influence host life-history characteristics, such as longevity, and simultaneously hostExpand

What drives flexibility in primate social organization?
The importance of behavioral flexibility for understanding primate ecology and evolutionary diversity is becoming increasingly apparent, and yet despite the abundance of long-term studies acrossExpand

AVPR1A Variation in Chimpanzees (Pan troglodytes): Population Differences and Association with Behavioral Style
Primates and other mammals show measurable, heritable variation in behavioral traits such as gregariousness, timidity, and aggression. Connections among behavior, environment, neuroanatomy, andExpand
