The effect of island area on body size in primate species from the Sunda Shelf Islands
Aim: We examine the effect of island area on body dimensions in a single species of primate endemic to Southeast Asia, the long-tailed macaque (Macaca fascicularis). In addition, we test Allen's rule and a within-species or intraspecific equivalent of Bergmann's rule (i.e. Rensch's rule) to evaluate body size and shape evolution in this sample of insular macaques. Location: The Sunda Shelf islands of Southeast Asia. Methods: Body size measurements of insular macaques gathered from the...[Show more]
