May 23-25 2022 : PALEVOPRIM welcome Julia Arenson

Welcome and intervention of Julia Arenson

We are very pleased to welcome Julia Arenson, a PhD candidate in Biological Anthropology at the City University of New York (CUNY) and the New York Consortium in Evolutionary Biology (NYCEP), interested broadly in cercopithecid systematics. My dissertation focuses on the evolutionary history of the leaf-eating monkeys (subfamily, Colobinae). Her talk today at PALEVOPRIM is about the highly diverse but understudied guenons (subfamily Cercopithecinae, tribe ). Surveys of the TL2 region in the Central Congo Basin by the Foundation have identified new populations of rare and cryptic primate species, including guenons (tribe Cercopithecini). In conjunction with ecological and molecular analyses, morphological comparisons yield new insights into the evolutionary systematics of these monkeys. In addition, the recent description of a Late Pleistocene fossil guenon from Laetoli, Tanzania is presented.
