For a rustic that a few decade in the past used to be mostly closed to international viewers, this Congress constituted an important occasion for the Malagasy medical neighborhood and was once assisted via approximately 550 primatolo­ gists from 35 assorted nations. clearly, given the venue and context of the Con­ gress, some of the shows handled lemurs and coated a truly extensive breadth of subjects.

Some have attempted to use biogeographic patterning to reconstruct generative processes. 71 Figure 11. a) Map showing Jaccard similarity coefficients for all pairwise comparisons of the extant-primate community at Tsirave to those at all other sites. b) Map showing Jaccard similarities for all pairwise comparisons of the extinct -primate community at Tsirave to those at five other subfossil sites. Tsirave is represented by a solid star.

Fulvus (probably rufus) co-exist, bones of the former are more common at the more southerly site (Ankilitelo) and the opposite is true at Tsirave. The current geographic ranges of L. catta and E. , 1994; Ganzhorn, 1994), but that of L. catta extends predominantly to the south of the range of E. fulvus. Locally extinct taxa are not uncommon at subfossil sites. Specimens of Indri indri, Hapalemur simus, and Propithecus tattersalli have been found at Ankarana, for example. 27 Past and Present Distributions of Lemurs in Madagascar Table 3.

However, there is considerable sIze variation in the postcrania of southern and coastal Pachylemur, and the geographic signal embedded in that variation needs evaluation. We see no clear morphological distinction between coastal and central forms of Pachylemur that warrants specific separation, and have thus included all Pachylemur in a single taxon. Mesopropithecus globiceps from the southwest is extremely similar to Mesopropithecus pithecoides from Ampasambazimba (Tattersall, 1971).
