My long-standing interest in the evolutionary biology of white-faced sakis and bearded sakis includes research related to food choice, nutritional and mechanical properties of foods eaten, evolution of sexual dichromatism in white-faced sakis, social cohesion differences in white-faced and bearded sakis, and the floristic ecology of Guiana Shield forests.
