Loris and potto conservation database
About the database and some coauthors
This non-commercial database for conservation of lorises and pottos is still under construction and partly unrevised. Please excuse incomplete data; see also impressum: some remarks about the data included. In cases of doubt please use the original literature quoted. Since taxonomy has repeatedly been changed and further changes are expected, taxonomic names included here are not always the names officially valid at present, see remarks added; to be sure for which populations given data are valid see list of synonyms. In some captive care matters such as nutrition experience is not yet sufficient, please do not blame us for any consequences from use of data included here, and please help us to recognize where improvement is necessary. 

Compiler and illustrator: Helga Schulze (Ruhr-University Bochum, contact address), some coauthors: see below. 

Any help to improve this data collection for the sake of the animals would be great. New data are included under the names of authors and are supposed to be quoted under their names by database users. (If you can contribute anything, information how to quote you would be helpful). Useful information may also be included anonymously.
