LaP – Laboratory of Primatology


The LaP is part of the Biodiversity Department of the Sao Paulo State University, Campus of Rio Claro, Brazil. We are particularly interested in how anthropogenic activities (defaunation, forest fragmentation…) affect the behavior and ecology of primates and the services they provide to the ecosystem, but we are also conducting research on other mammal groups and on dung beetles. Projects of our group are related to the following topics: primate ecology and behavior, seed dispersal, post-dispersal seed fate, movement ecology, physiology of stress, functional ecology, landscape ecology…

If you want to join our team, send an e-mail and tell us about your experience and research interest.
