Home Members Fieldwork What is a Prosimian? Species Publications

This is a long list of publications by the NPRG's members, mostly in collaboration with other members of the group. It is aimed to be as complete, as possible. However, if you cannot find an important reference, please contact the web-adminstrator!

(In the near future I hope to include links to short abstracts for each publication.)

For more primate-related topics, please also take a look at the Tess-Lemmon Library of the Primate Society of Great Britain.
