Nicholas Ellwanger


Research Interests: I am interested in primate behavioral and demographic flexibility, especially at the level of the population. I am also very interested in populations that live in habitats with relatively low resource availability. My focal populations of interest are chacma baboons (Papio ursinus) in the Southwestern South Africa. I have also studied ring-tailed lemurs (Lemur catta) in xerophytic spiny forests in Southern Madagascar.

Advisor: Dr. Thad Bartlett
