"Group versus population level demographics: An analysis of comparability using long term data on wild white‐faced capuchin monkeys (Cebus capucinus imitator)"


Tuesday, July 23, 2019

Congratulations to department members Jeremy Hogan (Anthropology and Archaeology Lab technician) and Dr. Linda Fedigan (Faculty Professor) on their recent publication: "Group versus population level demographics: An analysis of comparability using long term data on wild white‐faced capuchin monkeys (Cebus capucinus imitator)".

The paper analyses data collected over 35 years at the long-term field site in Sector Santa Rosa, Costa Rica. Results suggests that long term study of a subset of capuchins within the population is an accurate reflection of changes occurring in the population at large. The other co-authors on the paper are all former department members as well: Dr. Katherine Jack (MA’), Dr. Fernando Campos (PhD’), and Dr. Urs Kalbitzer (Former Postdoctoral fellow).
