New species of monkey described

A team including SBSC scientist Eric Sargis have described a new species of monkey endemic to the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) [1]. The team provided data on its distribution, morphology, genetics, ecology and behavior.


Hemisphere-scale differences in conifer evolutionary dynamics

A group including two SBSC researchers, Peter Crane and Michael Donoghue, have analyzed conifer ranges at a global scale[1]. Their findings suggest that "the abundance of recent divergences in northern clades may reflect complex patterns of migration and range shifts during climatic cycles over the later Neogene leading to elevated rates of speciation and...
