Work and fields of interest:
Work includes 10 years of research on the ecology and behaviour of nocturnal mammals in South Africa. MSc and PhD degrees for field and laboratory studies of bushbabies (galagos) at the University of the Witwatersrand, later work on feeding behaviour and communication in spotted hyaenas (Crucuta crocuta) for the Mammal Research Institute in Pretoria and a two-year, radio tracking field study of lesser bushbabies in the northern Transvaal, together with R. D. Martin. Promotion of public awareness of the plight of primates (including humans) and of tropical forests. Work in Zimbabwe, Kenya, S.E. Brazil, Malawi, Uganda, Tanzania, Cameroon, South Africa, Botswana, Namibia, Gabon and Madagascar.
Co-ordinator of the Nocturnal Primate Research Group (NPRG): work on galagos, lorises and pottos. Members of the group helped to discover unrecognised galago species by analysis of their calls. The group runs a sound analysis laboratory and has an extensive library of wildlife sounds. More about the NPRG: see http://ssl.brookes.ac.uk/Newsletter_3_2002/Res_Centre/Primate_Research.htm
