    • Low demographic variability in wild primate populations: fitness impacts of variation, covariation, and serial correlation in vital rates. 

      Morris, William F; Altmann, Jeanne; Brockman, Diane K; Cords, Marina; Fedigan, Linda M; Pusey, Anne E; Stoinski, Tara S; ... (10 authors) (Am Nat, 2011-01)
      In a stochastic environment, long-term fitness can be influenced by variation, covariation, and serial correlation in vital rates (survival and fertility). Yet no study of an animal population has parsed the contributions ...
    • Spider monkey home ranges: A comparison of radio telemetry and direct observation 

      Fedigan, Linda M; Fedigan, Laurence; Chapman, Colin; Glander, Kenneth E (American Journal of Primatology, 1988-01-01)
      The ranging patterns of two male and five female spider monkeys (Ateles geoffroyi) were studied with the use of radio telemetry in Santa Rosa National Park, Costa Rica. The average size of a spider monkey home range was ...
    • The emergence of longevous populations. 

      Colchero, Fernando; Rau, Roland; Jones, Owen R; Barthold, Julia A; Conde, Dalia A; Lenart, Adam; Nemeth, Laszlo; ... (21 authors) (Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A, 2016-11-29)
      The human lifespan has traversed a long evolutionary and historical path, from short-lived primate ancestors to contemporary Japan, Sweden, and other longevity frontrunners. Analyzing this trajectory is crucial for understanding ...
