Edge effects and their influence on lemur density and distribution in Southeast Madagascar.
Edge effects are caused by the penetration of abiotic and biotic conditions from the matrix into forest interiors. Although edge effects influence the biogeography of many tropical organisms, theyExpand

Lemur responses to edge effects in the Vohibola III classified forest, Madagascar
Forest edges are dynamic zones characterized by the penetration (to varying depths and intensities) of conditions from the surrounding environment (matrix) into the forest interior. Although edgeExpand

Ecogeographic size variations in Sifakas: a test of the resource seasonality and resource quality hypotheses.
Ecogeographic size variations have been documented in some but not all sifakas. Few morphometric or body weight data have been available for two critically endangered subspecies of diademed sifakas:Expand

Edge Effects on the Density of Cheirogaleus major
We investigated how greater dwarf lemur (Cheirogaleus major) densities, ambient air temperature, and dendrometrics (tree height and diameter) varied along forest edge-interior gradients in theExpand

Ecological Biogeography of Primates in Guyana
One of the goals of ecological biogeography is to determine correlates to species diversity and abundance in biological communities. Although large-scale disturbances, such as deforestation, haveExpand

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 Crisis of the Critically Endangered Greater Bamboo Lemur (Prolemur simus)
Abstract: Prolemur simus (the greater bamboo lemur) is the most abundant lemur in the northern subfossil sites of Madagascar. Living populations still persist, but in low numbers within aExpand

Biogeography and Primates: A Review
In this paper, we present an introduction to primate biogeography at a continental level and then review the literature as it pertains to primate studies. Primate species diversity is highest in theExpand

Feeding Patterns in a Small-Bodied Nocturnal Folivore (Avahi laniger) and the Influence of Leaf Chemistry: A Preliminary Study
We present data on feeding patterns in Avahi laniger and compare these data to temporal variations in leaf chemistry. Because A. laniger is one of the smallest folivorous primates and has aExpand

Species-area relationships predict that there is a positive relationship between the number of species and the size of an area. It has been suggested that species richness will covary with areaExpand
