From mid-August to late October 1988, we surveyed Marojejy Strict Nature Reserve, in the northern part of Madagascar’s rain forest. Although widely believed to be a keystone site for lemur conservation, only incidental information concerning Marojejy’s primate communities has hitherto been published. The reserve extends from 75 to 2133 m in altitude, and its 60,150 ha comprise an almost-intact series of altitudinal forest zones, now fundamentally isolated from formerly contiguous surrounding…

Taxonomic endemicity standardized weight (TESW) indices of phylogenetic diversity were used to determine the evolutionary component of biodiversity and to prioritize regions for conserving lemur taxa.

Abiotic and Biotic Factors as Predictors of Species Richness on Madagascar

Madagascar contains a diversity of endemic species. Yet levels of species richness vary among the isolated habitats scattered across the island. A number of ecological factors have been advanced to

Ethnoprimatology: A Practical Guide to Research at the Human-Nonhuman Primate Interface

The editors explain the hybrid nature of ethnoprimatology and its original aim of enriching conservation through a more complete involvement of humans as subjects of primate studies, and cover some fascinating material on local perceptions of non-human primates.



Key bird species of Marojejy Strict Nature Reserve, Madagascar

Four threatened species were found only in the upper montane forests and this apparent altitudinal preference for three of these species had not been suggested before this survey; the major threat to the birds of Marojejy is the ceaseless piecemeal clearance of the reserve's forest, which is proceeding inwards from the boundary.

Deforestation History of the Eastern Rain Forests of Madagascar from Satellite Images

Satellite images and vegetation maps based on earlier aerial photographs were used to determine the extent of eastern rain forests in Madagascar and to monitor the rate of deforestation over a 35-year period, finding that deforestation was most rapid in areas with low topographic relief and high population density.
