New results from our Cayo Santiago rhesus study at IPS/ASP 2016 in Chicago!

My collaborators and I have four presentations at the Congress that will feature data from our study in Group S on Cayo Santiago, mostly collected during the unusual tenure of 11Z as alpha (mating season 2013).

On Monday, Megan Petersdorf (NUY) will talk about male facial colour and male-male competitive encounters

On Tuesday, Kevin Rosenfield (Roehampton Uni/Penn State) will talk about how females prefer looking at more masculine-faced males and then on Thursday, he will do a poster on the relationship between male face shape (width-to-height ratio) and male competitive ability and reproduction.

Finally, on Friday, I will have some data on male androgen levels and how they relate (or not) to rank, mating effort and fecundity.

Come and check them out!
