Andrea Baden, PhD, shares her research from working with endemic species in Madagascar such as the Critically Endangered black-and-white ruffed lemur.

Madagascar, the fourth largest island in the world, is home to more than 12,000 plant and 700 vertebrate species, 80% to 90% of which are found nowhere else on Earth. Sadly, much of this biodiversity is currently threatened with extinction, making it among the hottest biodiversity hotspots in the world. In her talk, primatologist and lemur specialist Andrea Baden will describe her recent work with Madagascar's Critically Endangered black-and-white ruffed lemur (Genus Varecia) - an important seed disperser and indicator of rainforest health - and how her results are being used to inform conservation practice in an effort to save them.

Andrea Baden, PhD, is Associate Professor of Anthropology at Hunter College of the City University of New York. She is a biological anthropologist with training in primate behavioral and molecular ecology. Her research takes an interdisciplinary approach to answer broad evolutionary questions about lemur adaptation, evolution, and conservation.
