Who Else Is Going To The Midwest Primate Interest Group (MPIG) Conference?

This September, the illustrious Ashlee Van Schyndel (of This Is Serious Monkey Business) and I will be presenting in a poster session at Midwest Primate Interest Group (MPIG) Conference. The conference will be held in Northern Illinois University, Dekalb, IL from Friday (Sept. 28th) till Saturday (Sept. 29).

Our poster topic will be on the foraging preferences (food choice and substrate use) in lemur species in the absence of food availability pressures. Ashlee collected her data at the Lemur Conservation Foundation in Myakka City, FL when she was a research assistant.

For more information about the conference, please visit the Midwest Primate Interest Group website. Hope to see y'all at the conference!

Primatologist's Log, Stardate 2012.27.08: I am finally taking an Anthropology/Primate Class

Primatologist's log, supplemental. For the first time in my graduate life, I have finally sat foot inside the Anthropology lab at Hunter College, CUNY for my Primate Ecology and Behavior class. I am elated to be finally back into my home range, namely the Anthropology department, for a primate class. Since I'll have a lot of primate materials to go through, hopefully I'll blog more this semester. Not promising anything though since I'm getting married in October and I am busy rehearsing to be a Bridezilla. Well, not really ... but kinda, really.
