Living Primates Research Group

Providing a comparative framework for the understanding of human biology and behaviour

This group integrates and fosters research into the behaviour and ecology of living primates.

We seek to address fundamental questions concerning adaptation using living primates as model species; to provide a comparative framework for the understanding of human biology and behaviour, and to investigate the biological dimensions of anthropogenic impacts on non-human primates. Our research ranges from functional morphology to behavioural ecology & physiology, to cultural primatology and to the interplay of primate biology, ecology and conservation.

Our research focuses on wild primates, in particular chimpanzees (Pan troglodytes) in both West and East Africa, and capuchin monkeys (Sapajus/Cebus apella) in Argentina.
