A Molecular Phylogeny of Living Primates
The resolution of the primate phylogeny provides an essential evolutionary framework with far-reaching applications including: human selection and adaptation, global emergence of zoonotic diseases, mammalian comparative genomics, primate taxonomy, and conservation of endangered species.
Lemur Diversity in Madagascar

The aim is to provide a baseline for future taxonomic investigation, as well as a clearer focus for research and conservation priorities, and to review the current understanding of the diversity and current and past ranges of lemurs and indicate where there is controversy, discrepancy, or lack of knowledge.
Y-autosome translocation and infertility: usefulness of molecular, cytogenetic and meiotic studies
The morphological appearance of the normal chromosome 6 and the Y;6 translocated chromosome included in the compartment of the sex vesicle may allow an explanation of the degeneration of most spermatocytes after the pachytene stage.
Non-telomeric chromosome localization of (TTAGGG)n repeats in the genus Eulemur
The interspecific differences of the hybridization pattern of (TTAGGG)n sequences at the pericentromeres suggest that E. rubriventer branched off the common trunk before amplification of endogenous ( TTAGGG]n sequences occurred in pericentromeric regions.
Application of molecular cytogenetics for chromosomal evolution of the Lemuriformes (Prosimians)
The present findings do not allow us to propose the occurrence of any rearrangement common to Daubentoniidae and other Lemuriformes, and probably other Prosimii, and the previously established phylogenetic tree.
Molecular phylogeny and taxonomic revision of the sportive lemurs (Lepilemur, Primates)
The results support the classification of the eight major sportive lemur taxa as independent species and indicate further cryptic speciation events within L. ruficaudatus and L. dorsalis.

Species concepts and the determination of historic gene flow patterns in the Eulemur fulvus (brown lemur) complex
The phylogenetic species concept was used as an alternative method to the biological species concept for determining historic patterns of gene flow between the various E. fulvussubspecies and for conferring species status.
Highly repeated DNA sequences and systematics of malagasy primates
Analysis of highly repeated DNA sequences of Malagasy lemurs with restriction enzymes, Southern blotting and nucleotide sequencing has allowed us to draw the following conclusions: confirmation of the separation based on molecular biology data of Eulemur species from the Lemur catta/Hapalemur group.
