Erratum to: Conserv Genet (2008) 9:1605–1615 DOI 10.1007/s10592-007-9499-4

In the original publication of the article, the authors reported (among other findings) a significant relationship between neutral heterozygosity and survival in a captive colony of Lemur catta. An increase in lemur sample size achieved over the past several years led them to re-examine these survival analyses, specifically, at which point they discovered an error in the original survivorship models. Negative findings, even with the larger sample, lead them to conclude that there is no relationship between neutral heterozygosity and survival in this captive population.
