Lab Update

To date, I have extracted DNA from all of the samples I collected in the field in Palenque National Park and surrounding areas. Thanks to the help of two assistants, Jill and Andrew, this part of the lab work went very quickly. Now, I am continuing analyses using the DNA and hope to have preliminary results soon! (I presented some preliminary data comparing the gut bacteria of howler groups living in forest fragments to those living in the continuous forest of Palenque National Park at the American Society of Primatologists annual meetings in Austin, TX in September.) Stay tuned for publications!
