Date & time

Since 2001, I have taken advantage of the opportunity to study the effects of a category 4 hurricane on a wild new world monkey population for which pre-hurricane data were available. Using demographic data collected from 2001 – 2011, this talk will explain the 10 year recovery pattern of these monkeys looking at changes in population density, group size and composition, rates of reproduction and infant survival.
