Madagascar ranks as one of the world's top extinction hotspots because of its high endemism and high rate of habitat degradation. Global climate phenomena such as El Nino Southern Oscillations may have confounding impacts on the island's threatened biota but these effects are less well known. We performed a demographic study of Propithecus edwardsi, a lemur inhabiting the eastern rainforest of Madagascar, to evaluate the impact of deforestation, hunting, and El Nino on its population and to re… Expand
