Project: The evolution of female dominance in mouse lemurs: the effect of sex and species on social interactions.

 

Main interests: I am interested in primatology, behavioral ecology, and conservation biology that is why I am studying in my PhD thesis the evolution of female dominance in primates using a closely related primate radiation, the Malagasy mouse lemurs.  A central and controversially debated topic in behavioral ecology is how and why female dominance emerges during evolution in primates. Using a standardized social encounter paradigm in the field, I will explore conflict behavior of social dyads of seven different mouse lemur species along a transect in northwestern and northern Madagascar.  If female dominance is a phylogenetically old trait, it should occur universally across most species. If female dominance is a derived trait, it is to be expected to vary among species, dependent on environmental factors, such as the type and quality of sleeping sites or food quality. My PhD project has therefore the goal to investigate for the first time the pattern of intersexual relationships in seven mouse lemurs species, most of them recently described and in the IUCN categories vulnerable or endangered, to get more insight into the evolution of female dominance in lemurs. My study will also contribute to provide new data on the biology of the recently discovered species, endangered due to limited distribution and strong habitat fragmentation.
