Did you know howler monkeys (Alouatta sp.) are the only New World primate in which males and females see color equally well, and probably have color vision as good as ours? - ACG, Costa Rica

Welcome! Our lab is involved in a broad range of research focused on the intersection of behavior, sensory ecology, diet and dietary outcomes of nonhuman and human primates. We take an integrative approach to answering questions on evolution, melding molecular ecology and fecal metagenomics with field observations of primates and analyses of stable isotopes.
