Research description: I am interested in better understanding visual signals that primates use and the selection pressures that act on the presence or absence of those signals. For my research, I explore if and how lemurs use visual signals in pelage to communicate quality to conspecifics, identity to congenerics, and to camouflage from predators. I use digital photography and a method of color analysis called Eigencoats to quantify and analyze coloration of museum preserved lemur skins. I am also interested in understanding the selection pressures that drive and maintain visual system variation within lemurs.
