Strength in numbers: males in a carnivore grow bigger when they associate and hunt cooperatively
Group-living has been recognized as one of the major transitions in evolution. Male sociality along with solitary females is rare in mammals, but it can provide unique insights into the evolution ofExpand

Spatial memory in the grey mouse lemur (Microcebus murinus)
Wild animals face the challenge of locating feeding sites distributed across broad spatial and temporal scales. Spatial memory allows animals to find a goal, such as a productive feeding patch, evenExpand

Simultaneous GPS tracking reveals male associations in a solitary carnivore
In hypercarnivorous species, females have large spatial requirements to meet their nutritional needs, and food competition among females is intense. As a result, females are typically solitary andExpand

Polyandrous mating in treetops: how male competition and female choice interact to determine an unusual carnivore mating system
The diversity of mammalian mating systems is primarily shaped by sex-specific reproductive strategies. In the present study, we explored determinants and consequences of a unique mating systemExpand

An unusual case of cooperative hunting in a solitary carnivore
Cooperative hunting has been documented for several group-living carnivores and had been invoked as either the cause or the consequence of sociality. We report the first detailed observation ofExpand

Social organisation and mating system of the fosa (Cryptoprocta ferox)
Mammalian mating systems are closely related to the social organisation of a species, which in turn is determined by sex-specific selection pressures with respect to access to limited resources. InExpand

Genetic polymorphism and structure of wild and zoo populations of the fosa (Eupleridae, Carnivora), the largest living carnivoran of Madagascar
Cryptoprocta ferox, or fosa, is the largest living endemic carnivoran of Madagascar, with presumably high dispersal capacity, and for which no broad scale phylogeographic study has been conducted toExpand

Lemurs of the Beanka Forest , Melaky Region , western Madagascar
Explaining the biodiversity and, in particular, the high levels of microendemism of primates in Madagascar has been a scientific challenge for many decades. A prerequisite to our understanding ofExpand
