Topics in Primate Conservation focuses on current issues and developments affecting the conservation of threatened and endangered primates. Coverage includes: conservation strategies and activities; systematics and geographic distribution; habitat evaluation; and field research on ecology, evolution and behavior. This is a collaborative effort with those engaged in conservation work with nonhuman primates.
The coordinator for this series is:
NANCY RUGGERI, Assistant Faculty Associate, Department of Zoology, University of Wisconsin-Madison. Nancy received her Master's degree in Biological Anthropology from the University of Wisconsin in 1996. She investigated the calling behavior of the White-cheeked gibbon (Hylobates leucogenys) in the Lao PDR and its implications for conservation. While in Laos, she worked for the Wildlife Conservation Society and implemented a training program for the Lao forestry staff in protected Areas Management. In 1992, as part of her graduate studies, she had the opportunity to work on a project in Rwanda studying the ecology and behavior of two forest guenons, Cercopithecus l'hoesti and C. mitis. She is currently working at the University of Wisconsin's Department of Zoology teaching introductory biology while pursuing her interest in primate conservation.
