Lemurs in Madagascar [electronic resource]: Surviving on an Island of Change

American Museum of Natural History
Format
Video; Computer Resource; Online Video; Online
Summary
On the world's fourth-largest island, and virtually nowhere else, lives an entire "infraorder" of primates: the three dozen or so lemur species. But Madagascar has radically transformed since another primate - humans - arrived 2,000 years ago. Rampant deforestation, habitat fragmentation, and other anthropogenic factors are impacting lemurs much faster than evolution can mitigate the effects. This science bulletin follows American and Malagasy scientists through the country's remaining forests to learn how these compelling creatures are coping with change.
