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

Testing the adaptive radiation hypothesis for the lemurs of Madagascar
Lemurs, the diverse, endemic primates of Madagascar, are thought to represent a classic example of adaptive radiation. Based on the most complete phylogeny of living and extinct lemurs yet assembled,Expand
