Research Interests for Anne D. Yoder

Research Interests:

My primary research focus is the phylogenetics and evolution of Madagascar's lemurs. This has also inspired a broader interest in the biogeography of Madagascar, especially its modern terrestrial vertebrates. Given that Madagascar's natural habatitats are under extreme human pressures, I am also involved with conservation projects, especially those that involve training local Malagasy students and other scholars.

Keywords:
