The ecology of De Brazzas monkey (Cercopithecus neglectus) and its habitat, prior to translocation, was studied at Sinyerere Farm forest patch in the environs of the Cherangani Hills, and in Buyangu National Forest Reserve (BUNAFOR) located in main Kakamega Forest. This species is endangered in Kenya with only about 200 individuals reported to occur in the wild. Majority of them live in small isolated and unprotected forest patches in private land where they are killed for raiding crops and skins that are used for making ornaments. Therefore, there is need to translocate groups of this species that are most threatened in their present habitats to a safer area. One such group is found in Sinyerere Farm forest patch and need to be translocated to BUNAFOR. However, before the intended translocation the ecology of this group of De Brazzas monkeys and its present and proposed release habitats needed to be studied. This study was aimed at obtaining the ecological and behavioural information to be ...

Spatial variation in predation risk generates a landscape of fear, with prey animals modifying their distribution and behaviour in response to this variable predation risk. In systems comprising multiple predators and prey species, a key challenge is distinguishing the independent effects of different predator guilds on prey responses. We exploited the acoustically distinct alarm calls of samango monkeys, Cercopithecus mitis erythrarchus, to create a predator-specific landscape of fear from eagles to assess its impact on space use within mixed regressive-spatial regressive models incorporating data on resource distribution and structural characteristics of the environment. The landscape of fear from eagles was the most significant determinant of samango range use, with no effect of resource availability. The monkeys also selected areas of their range with higher canopies and higher understory visibility, behaviour consistent with further minimizing risk of predation. These results contrast ...

Lorri Horn, born and raised in California, has been working with kids all her life. She got her first babysitting job when she was nine years old, became a camp counselor, and went on to be a teacher. Its true she did eat all of the pickles and popsicles on her first babysitting gig, but she did manage to feed that kid a cheese and pickle sandwich before polishing off the rest of the jar off herself. No one complained. Evidently, she had a knack with kids.. Lorri spent a few years studying cercopithecus aethiops (vervet monkeys) and thought shed be a famous biological anthropologist. But it turns out you have to rough it and camp to do that kind of job, and Lorris more of a pillow-top mattress and no bug repellent kind of gal. Plus, while it was fascinating to study and observe our little nonhuman primate brothers and sisters lip-smacking to communicate things like "Oh, gee, Im sorry, is that your branch?", Lorri found it much more rewarding to share a good book with a kid.

N2 - Non-human primates (NHPs) are an invaluable resource for the study of genetic regulation of disease mechanisms. The main disadvantage of using NHPs as a preclinical model of human disease is the difficulty of manipulating the monkey genome using conventional gene modifying strategies. Lentiviruses offer the possibility of circumventing this difficulty because they can infect and transduce either dividing or nondividing cells, without producing an immune response. In addition, lentiviruses can permanently integrate into the genome of host cells, and are able to maintain long-term expression. In this article we describe the lentiviral vectors ...
Common names. Vervet monkey [English], blouaap [Afrikaans], inkawu [isiZulu and isiNdebele], kgabo [Setswana and Sesotho], ngobiyana [siSwati], nkawa [Xitsonga] and thoho [Tshivenda].. Vervet monkeys are medium-sized primates that are highly social and live in groups of up to 50 individuals. Within a troop, adult males form a dominance hierarchy that is established and maintained by threat and aggression. Facial expressions (eye lid display) and body postures are used to communicate threats or aggressive behaviour. At sexual maturity, young males tend to migrate between groups - usually in the company of a sibling or peer. In contrast females remain in their natal groups and form strong hierarchies that are based on maternal social status. Vervet monkeys are largely vegetarian and are common in savannah and woodland that have access to water and trees for cover. Vervet monkeys can be serious pests that cause crop damages in areas where their habitat overlaps with agricultural areas. Vervet ...

We began moving outside to the orchestra pit (ho-ho!) and bonfire. All a mad rush, with clouds darkening. Then, suddenly, the whole sky brightened and became orangey-pink the most surreal bizarre light we all agreed wed ever seen. It was as though night had become day again but in a diffuse, unearthly light which seemed to get everywhere and not leave proper shadows.. Later, people in Carriacou said they see this just occasionally before a tropical storm. The sky needs to darken first and your brain thinks evening has begun. Then theres a lull before the storm and the sky opens a bit which surprises everyone cos you thought it was night. But the heavy, saturated air and low cloud diffuses and scatters the light around. It was just spooky. Didnt seem like red light felt like a movie set or an Agatha Christie plot. A MAD scenario.

By Jake Crosby. It may sound bizarre, but that is exactly what happened when journalists Dan Olmsted and David Kirby interfered with Coalition for Mercury-Free Drugs Reverend Lisa Sykes 2008 personal injury lawsuit against drug companies Bayer, Wyeth and GlaxoSmithKline. Incredibly, Olmsted and Kirby were persuaded to co-write a letter that took the side of the drug companies against Sykes case. Even more bizarre was who successfully appealed to Olmsted and Kirby to support Bayer: vaccine industry mainstay blogger Dr. David Gorski, via an open letter on "Science"Blogs. (He would later accept direct funding from Bayer: a 30,000-euro grant according to Gorski himself.). It all began when "neurodiversity" blogger Kathleen Seidel of the now-defunct neurodiversity.com website was subpoenaed by attorney Cliff Shoemaker, who was representing Reverend Sykes in her case against Bayer and other pharmaceutical companies for injuries her son sustained from mercury exposure through vaccination and ...
encountering one of the monkeys in captivity in a village, the researchers observed the animal, known locally as the "lesula," in the wild and, after conducting DNA tests, confirmed that it is a unique species. Scientists say the new species has a naked face and muzzle, a blond chin, a reddish lower back and tail, and a "brilliant blue" patch of skin in the buttocks and scrotum area. The monkey, which researchers named Cercopithecus lomamiensis, is just the second new species of African monkey identified in the past 28 years. Researchers believe it was likely not identified by scientists earlier because of the remoteness of its 6,500-square-mile range. "If were finding new species of primates, then who knows how many new species of small mammals or lizards or insects, just to name a few, might be out there," said Eric Sargis, a professor at Yale University and one of the co-authors of the study. The findings are published in the journal PLoS ONE ...
Modeling atomic-level behavior can be done using a popular form of computer simulation called Molecular Dynamics (MD). Used for decades, MD codes employ Newtons Second Law of Motion to model the time evolution of complex biomolecular systems. For the HIV-1 virion, its size and complexity required a simulation on the scale of 500 million atoms-roughly 3 orders of magnitude greater than any current MD code can handle. Additionally, the team needed to examine the virus at varying time and length scales to gather meaningful results. Fortunately Voths team had already developed a highly flexible MD code called TANTALUS. This code employs a method of MD called coarse grained MD, or CG-MD, which is much less computationally intense. With CG-MD, single CG "sites" model entire collections of atoms. The feature of TANTALUS that makes it attractive to the virion problem is its coupling with all-atom simulations, its ability to use both forms of MD, and then make meaningful connections between the two. ...

Dont put too much weight in specific proportions, rather, focus on the relationships between them. No matter the extact percentage of "Anglo-Saxon" which emerges out of any given survey, it is almost certain that East Anglia will exhibit the modal value and other regions of England and Wales will have decreasing proportions as a function of distance ...

Studies on viruses recovered from South African Cercopithecus monkeys have been carried out by Malherbe & Harwin (1957) and Malherbe, Harwin & Ulrich (1963). One such virus, designated S.A. 11 (strain h96) was isolated from a rectal swab taken from a healthy vervet monkey in 1958 (Malherbe & Strickland-Cholmley, 1967). This virus has not yet been characterized morphologically. A virus isolated from intestinal washings of cattle and sheep (Malherbe, Strickland-Cholmley & Geyer, 1967) and designated O agent, showed eosinophilic cytoplasmic inclusions in monkey kidney cell cultures similar to those of S.A. 11 (Malherbe & Strickland-Cholmley, 1967). No published information is available on the structure of this virus. On the basis of similarities in serology, pH instability, resistance to desoxycholate and certain other characteristics, the viruses are considered to be virtually identical (Malherbe & Strickland-Cholmley, 1970). In addition Verwoerd (1970) has suggested that S.A. 11

LHoests monkey (Cercopithecus lhoesti), or mountain monkey, is a guenon found in Cameroon and the Congo basin. There are two distinct populations and subspecies of this monkey that are widely separated in distribution. They mostly live in mountainous forest areas in small, female-dominated groups. They have a dark coat and can be distinguished by a characteristic white beard.. Habitat. LHoests monkey is a forest monkey that is typical of the moist and high primary forests. The western race is mostly relegated to mountainous regions. They are also found in rain forests in an elevation above 3,281 feet (1000 m), as well as old secondary and mature forests. It has also been found to inhabit isolated forest patches in mountain grasslands. The eastern population occurs in a wider number of habitats. It will occupy a range of different kinds of forested areas. These areas include gallery forest, mature lowland rain forests, wooded grasslands at mountain slopes, and forest borders. However, it ...

From a Darwinian viewpoint, the existence of altruism in nature is at first sight puzzling, as Darwin himself realized. Natural selection leads us to expect animals to behave in ways that increase their own chances of survival and reproduction, not those of others. But by behaving altruistically an animal reduces its own fitness, so should be at a selective disadvantage vis- -vis one which behaves selfishly. To see this, imagine that some members of a group of Vervet monkeys give alarm calls when they see predators, but others do not. Other things being equal, the latter will have an advantage. By selfishly refusing to give an alarm call, a monkey can reduce the chance that it will itself be attacked, while at the same time benefiting from the alarm calls of others. So we should expect natural selection to favour those monkeys that do not give alarm calls over those that do. But this raises an immediate puzzle. How did the alarm-calling behaviour evolve in the first place, and why has it not ...
