Introduction
I am working to understand and reduce human-primate conflict issues in the suburban town of Diani, Kenya. I am also looking at the conservation of Colobus angolensis palliatus in Kenya and Tanzania especially their genetics and historic migration.

Article
Full-text available
For primates, canopy bridges can reduce the road barrier effect. Yet little information exists to predict species bridge use. We examined bridge use across a 9 km suburban road in Diani, Kenya, in three survey years (N bridges : 21 = 2004, 27 = 2011, 29 = 2020) by four sympatric species of monkeys. The asphalt road is 6 m wide with a 50 km/h speed...
Article
Whether the Colobus angolensis that reside in the fragmented forests in eastern Kenya and Tanzania represent one subspecies or two has been debated for 50 years. Morphological and more recent genetic and ecological studies suggest that these populations represent two subspecies, C. a. palliatus and C. a. sharpei. However, their distribution of mito...
Article
Full-text available
Electric shock and electrocution affect at least 31 primate species, but studies of how electrical infrastructure affects primate populations are rare. We investigated 320 cases of electric shock and electrocution in four sympatric monkey species in Diani, Kenya, 1998–2019: Peters’s Angola colobus (Colobus angolensis palliatus), Zanzibar Sykes’s mo...

Article
Full-text available
The impacts of road infrastructure on wildlife are of mounting concern. Amidst a growing body of literature on vehicle–wildlife collisions, few studies focus on primates. We examined a long-term dataset (2000–2018) of community-reported welfare cases for four species of monkeys: colobus (Colobus angolensis palliatus), Sykes’s monkey (Cercopithecus...
Poster
Full-text available
Folivorous primates are hypothesized to have relatively larger premolars than frugivores due to the mechanical and energetic challenges of leaf consumption. More specifically, it is reasoned that as folivory increases, so do the mechanical demands of mastication, resulting in more frequent premolar loading. Because interspecific variation in folivo...
Article
Ecological niche models can be useful for clarifying relationships between environmental factors and a species' geographic distribution. In this study, we use presence-only data and environmental layers to create an ecological niche model to better understand the distribution of the East African Angolan black and white colobus monkey, Colobus angol...
Article
Full-text available
Electrocution from power infrastructure threatens many primate species, yet knowledge of effective evidence-based mitigation strategies is limited. Mitigation planning requires an understanding of the spatial distribution of electrocutions to prioritize high-risk areas. In Diani, a coastal Kenyan town, electrocution is an important cause of death f...
Chapter
Full-text available
Diani is an international tourist destination located on the south coast of Kenya. This chapter addresses the issue of primate injury and death caused by wildlife-vehicle collision (WVC), the Colobus Conservation installed the first canopy bridge in 1997, locally known as a 'colobridge'. A preliminary study in 2011 assessed traffic volume along the...
Article
Full-text available
Geographically referenced biodiversity information is important for conservation management and zoning. Biodiversity surveys were initiated in the East Usambara Mountains in 1995 to provide baseline information on the biological values of the forests for management planning and monitoring, and to train field staff in the use of biological inventory...

Question
I am comparing the honing complex of apes but cannot find a detailed description, or even a general description for the bonobo.
Question
I understand that just the canine tip is honed in bonobos and would like to verify that.
