Oligocene mammals from Ethiopia and faunal exchange between Afro-Arabia and Eurasia
Afro-Arabian mammalian communities underwent a marked transition near the Oligocene/Miocene boundary at approximately 24 million years (Myr) ago. Although it is well documented that the endemicExpand

Primate energy expenditure and life history
Significance Measurements of daily energy expenditure indicate that primates, including humans, expend only half of the calories expected for mammals of similar body size. As energy expenditure isExpand

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

Bird fossils from Ankilitelo Cave: inference about Holocene environmental changes in southwestern Madagascar.
The identifications of non-permineralized fossil bird bones recovered from Ankilitelo Cave in southwestern Madagascar are presented. Among the more than 560 elements recovered, 29 different taxa wereExpand

Ecological biogeography of Malagasy non‐volant mammals: community structure is correlated with habitat
Aim  To examine the relationship between ecoregions, as a proxy for regional climate and habitat type, and mammalian community structure, defined by species composition and richness (e.g. taxonomicExpand

The Subfossil Occurrence and Paleoecological Significance of Small Mammals at Ankilitelo Cave, Southwestern Madagascar
Abstract Small mammals are rarely reported from subfossil sites in Madagascar despite their importance for paleoenvironmental reconstruction, especially as it relates to recent ecological changes onExpand

The Dwarf and Mouse Lemurs of Madagascar: Ecological niche modeling of mouse lemurs ( Microcebus spp.) and its implications for their species diversity and biogeography
Recent studies of lemur species diversity have particularly focused on mouse lemurs (Cheirogaleidae: Microcebus) – small, nocturnal, and superficially monotypic creatures (Radespiel et al., 2012;Expand
