Description

Thursday 24 January 2019

Doors open at 6:30pm and the lecture will begin at 7pm.

What it means to be a monkey on the planet of the people

In this inaugural lecture, Professor Amanda Korstjens will explore how monkey and ape behaviours are shaped by their environment. She will also explain how human modifications to natural environments and climate change are affecting monkeys and apes globally, drawing on her research expertise and work in locations across the world.

Professor Amanda Korstjens is a behavioural ecologist, who studies animals in their natural environments. Her work has taken her around the world to places such as Indonesia, Côte d’Ivoire, Costa Rica and Uganda. Professor Korstjens’s current research explores subjects such as the influence of climate change and human disturbance on primate distribution patterns, disease transmission, social behaviour, and human-wildlife conflicts.
