Our visiting scholars, Rachel Munds and Chelsea Titus spent this past week at the Joint meeting of the International Primatological Society and the American Society of Primatologists in Chicago, Illinois hosted by Lincoln Park Zoo’s Lester Fisher Center for the Study and Conservation of Apes.

 

 

 

Chelsea and Rachel both presented posters on their research investigating the evolutionary history of Lorisidae primates (Arctocebus, Loris,Nycticebus, and Perodicticus) and their phylogeny in relation to genes that influence coat color/patterning to better describe their taxonomy.
