Research description

My research project investigates the commensalism issue between human and nonhuman primates, relating to a growing phenomenon where some species, as long-tailed macaque (Macaca fascicularis), adapt to anthropogenic environments. Firstly conducted in Thailand and then in Bali (Indonesia), this research aims to compare macaque populations living in various degrees of human proximity. Through this comparative approach, we intend to assess impact of commensalism on eco-behavioural aspects such as activity budget, diet composition, ranging behaviour and population dynamics. We plan also to perform a population viability analysis in order to assess future trends and potential management and conservation needs of these populations.

Keywords

Commensalism – Behavioural Ecology – Human-primate interactions - Macaca fascicularis
