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, they have not been studied directly in primates. Edge effects are particularly relevant to lemurs due to the loss of 80-90% of forests in Madagascar. In this study,(More)
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 edge effects influence many tropical organisms, they have not been studied directly in primates. Edge effects are particularly relevant to lemurs because of the highly(More)
Decken's sifaka (Propithecus deckeni deckeni) is found between the Mahavavy and Manambolo Rivers, in western Madagascar. Twenty-one polymorphic nuclear microsatellite loci were isolated from genomic DNA derived from a P. d. deckeni, from Tsingy de Bemaraha National Park. Population genetic parameters were estimated on 10 individuals each, sampled from(More)

The gas delivery characteristics during simulated spontaneous ventilation of a non-rebreathing adaptation of the Bain circuit were examined. Tidal volumes were varied from 200 to 600 ml and respiratory rate from 8 to 20 breaths per minute obtaining characteristics for a minute volume range from 2.4 to 12 litres/minute. The minimum inspired oxygen(More)
