    This commentary emerged from a panel presentation at the International Primatological Society Congress in Nairobi, Kenya, 2018. The goal was to provide regional updates on the status of primate removal from habitat countries, ...
  • Neanderthal plant use and pyrotechnology: phytolith analysis from Roc de Marsal, France 

    Wroth, Kristen; Cabanes, Dan; Marston, John M.; Aldeias, Vera; Sandgathe, Dennis; Turq, Alain; Goldberg, Paul; Dibble, Harold L. (Springer Nature Switzerland AG, 2019-08)
    The plant component of Neanderthal subsistence and technology is not well documented, partially due to the preservation constraints of macrobotanical components. Phytoliths, however, are preserved even when other plant ...
  • Population-specific use of the same tool-assisted alarm call between two wild orangutan populations (Pongopygmaeus wurmbii) indicates functional arbitrariness 

    Lameira, Adriano R.; Hardus, Madeleine E.; Nouwen, Kim J. J. M.; Topelberg, Eva; Delgado, Roberto A.; Spruijt, Berry M.; Sterck, Elisabeth H. M.; Knott, Cheryl D.; Wich, Serge A. (PUBLIC LIBRARY SCIENCE, 2013-07-05)
    Arbitrariness is an elementary feature of human language, yet seldom an object of comparative inquiry. While arbitrary signals for the same function are relatively frequent between animal populations across taxa, the same ...
  • SIVagm infection in wild African green monkeys from South Africa: epidemiology, natural history, and evolutionary considerations 

    Ma, Dongzhu; Jasinska, Anna; Kristoff, Jan; Grobler, J. Paul; Turner, Trudy; Jung, Yoon; Schmitt, Christopher; Raehtz, Kevin; Feyertag, Felix; Sosa, Natalie Martinez; Wijewardana, Viskam; Burke, Donald S.; Robertson, David L.; Tracy, Russell; Pandrea, Ivona; Freimer, Nelson; Apetrei, Cristian (Public Library of Science, 2013-01-01)
    Pathogenesis studies of SIV infection have not been performed to date in wild monkeys due to difficulty in collecting and storing samples on site and the lack of analytical reagents covering the extensive SIV diversity. ...
  • Low testosterone correlates with delayed development in male orangutans 

    Thompson, Melissa Emery; Zhou, Amy; Knott, Cheryl D. (PUBLIC LIBRARY SCIENCE, 2012-10-15)
    Male orangutans (Pongo spp.) display an unusual characteristic for mammals in that some adult males advance quickly to full secondary sexual development while others can remain in an adolescent-like form for a decade or ...
  • Two deaths and a funeral: ritual inscriptions' affordances for mourning and moral personhood in Vietnam 

    Shohet, Merav (WILEY, 2018-02-01)
    Mortuary rituals constitute the social nature of death and mourning, often working to ease painful transitions for the deceased and bereaved. In Vietnam, such rituals involve objects, including commodified yet personalized ...
  • Beyond the clinic? Eluding a medical diagnosis of anorexia through narrative 

    Shohet, Merav (SAGE PUBLICATIONS LTD, 2018-08-01)
    The persistence and recurrence of anorexia nervosa poses a clinical challenge, and provides support for critiques of oppressive and injurious facets of society inscribed on women’s bodies. This essay illustrates how a ...
  • Evidence of strong stabilizing effects on the evolution of boreoeutherian (Mammalia) dental proportions. 

    Monson, Tesla A.; Boisserie, Jean-Renaud; Brasil, Marianne F.; Clay, Selene M.; Dvoretzky, Rena; Ravindramurthy, Shruti; Schmitt, Christopher A.; Souron, Antoine; Takenaka, Risa; Ungar, Peter S.; Yoo, Sunwoo; Zhou, Michael; Zuercher, Madeleine E.; Hlusko, Leslea J. (2019-07)
    The dentition is an extremely important organ in mammals with variation in timing and sequence of eruption, crown morphology, and tooth size enabling a range of behavioral, dietary, and functional adaptations across the ...
  • Fecal temperature of wild and captive Bornean orangutans (Pongo pygmaeus wurmbii) as a proxy for body temperature 

    Syainullah, Muhammad; Harwell, Faye; Gotama, Rinaldi; Junardi, Pak; Scott, Katherine; Philp, Brodie; Mitra Setia, Tatang; Susanto, Tri Wahyu; Knott, Cheryl (2019-10-21)
    Primate health status affects individual fitness and survival, yet is difficult to noninvasively investigate in the wild. Using a method tested on chimpanzees and humans, we estimated temperature of fecal samples of ...
  • Possible male infanticide in wild orangutans and a re-evaluation of infanticide risk 

    Knott, Cheryl D.; Scott, Amy M.; O'Connell, Caitlin A.; Scott, Katherine S.; Laman, Timothy G.; Riyandi; Susanto, Tri Wahyu (2019-05-24)
    Infanticide as a male reproductive tactic is widespread across mammals, and is particularly prevalent in catarrhine primates. While it has never been observed in wild orangutans, infanticide by non-sire males has been ...
