Ecology and Evolution Issue 2.3 is now Live
This issue’s featured article is: Genetic signatures of a demographic collapse in a large-bodied forest dwelling primate (Mandrillus leucophaeus) by Nelson Ting and colleagues. The drill (Mandrillus leucophaeus) is a cryptic and endangered primate that inhabits the rainforests of West Central Africa. The authors discovered a nearly 15-fold decline in drill female effective population size that is most marked during the Mid Holocene. This article postulates the cause of the population collapse to be forest recession brought on by a warm and arid climate, conditions which may be analogous to projected changes in climate for some current tropical forested regions.
