  • With the dramatic increase in research on Madagascar’s lemurs during the past few decades, it is now feasible to both document anti-predator behavior and to test predictions regarding the effect of predation pressure on the behavioral ecology of lemurs. In 1994 Goodman raised much interest by his suggestion that, in the absence of large, extant predators on Madagascar, anti-predator behaviors and strategies in lemurs were an artifact of a behavioral repertoire that existed before the extinction… CONTINUE READING
