Field Observations of Social Behavior of Lemur fulvus fulvus E. Geoffroy 1812

  • Jonathan E. Harrington

Abstract

Lemur fulvus is a widely ranging prosimian found in nearly all of the remaining forested areas of Madagascar except the dry forest of the extreme South. As stated in Sussman (Chapter 13), the taxonomy of the L. fulvus-macaco group is in an uncertain condition and may need revision as more information on the morphology, distribution, behavior, cytogenetics, and biochemistry of these animals becomes available.
