Abstrakt wykładu (w języku angielskim)
Dr. Carretero-Pinzón will describe her >15 years of work studying population dynamics, behavior and conservation status of 5 species of neotropical primates in the Colombian Llanos. She will share some of her insights into the factors that most contribute to the survival of monkeys in areas under heavy anthropogenic pressure, such as the presence of living fences. She stresses the importance of building understanding and cooperation with people living in primate-rich areas.
