Noninvasive telemetric gaze tracking in freely moving socially housed prosimian primates.
TLDR
A new, telemetric, infrared-video gaze-tracker is implemented to measure visual orienting in freely moving, socially housed prosimian primates (Lemur catta), permitting successful measurements of gaze behavior during spontaneous locomotion through both terrestrial and arboreal landscapes, and in both social and asocial environments.

Determining Mhc-DRB profiles in wild populations of three congeneric true lemur species by noninvasive methods
TLDR
In three congeneric true lemur species, there is neither evidence of a duplication of DRB genes nor a sharing of alleles among sympatric groups or allopatric populations of the same species, providing evidence for balancing selection. Expand
The gray mouse lemur (Microcebus murinus) as a model for early primate brain evolution
TLDR
Considering its phylogenetic position and early primate-like traits, the mouse lemurs are a perfect model species to study the early evolution of primate brains. Expand

Population genetic structure of the thick-tailed bushbaby (Otolemur crassicaudatus) from the Soutpansberg Mountain range, Northern South Africa, based on four mitochondrial DNA regions
TLDR
This study provides the first detailed insights into the mitochondrial genetic diversity of a continental African strepsirrhine primate and demonstrates the utility of mitochondrial DNA in intraspecific genetic population analyses of these primates. Expand
Instrumental Problem-Solving Abilities in Three Lemur Species (Microcebus murinus, Varecia variegata, and Lemur catta)
TLDR
Although strepsirrhine primates may lack the fine motor skills to use a stick as a reaching tool, they performed comparable with naturally tool-using haplorhine primates on means-end problems, suggesting a dissociation in primates between the judgment of spatial relations between two objects, which appears to be roughly equivalent across species.

Prosimian Primates Show Ratio Dependence in Spontaneous Quantity Discriminations
TLDR
Prosimians were not able to robustly discriminate quantities that differed by a 1:2 ratio for the same three conditions, nor did they show a preference for small quantities that differ by a 2:3 ratio, which implicate the ANS in the spontaneous numerical discriminations of non-human primates. Expand
Structural characterization of neutral and acidic oligosaccharides in the milks of strepsirrhine primates: greater galago, aye-aye, Coquerel’s sifaka and mongoose lemur
TLDR
The finding of a variety of neutral and acidic oligosaccharides in the milks of strepsirrhines, as previously reported for haplorhines, suggests that such constituents are ancient rather than derived features, and are as characteristic of primate lactation is the classic disaccharide, lactose. Expand
Development and application of a phylogenomic toolkit: resolving the evolutionary history of Madagascar's lemurs.
TLDR
The phylogenomic toolkit is used to develop 11 novel markers from nine chromosomes, representing approximately 9 kb of nuclear sequence data, and yields a data set of more than 16 kb that will be of value to other studies of primate phylogeny and diversification. Expand
