    Department of Anthropology, Washington University, St Louis, Missouri 63130 4899, USA
    Am J Primatol 70:816-27. 2008
    ..These findings emphasize the importance of examining detailed dietary variation for predicting extinction risk at a relatively fine taxonomic scale and, consequently, may help improve conservation management...
  2. doi request reprint Environmental and geographic correlates of the taxonomic structure of primate communities
    Jason M Kamilar
    Department of Anthropology, Washington University, St Louis, MO 63130 4899, USA
    Am J Phys Anthropol 139:382-93. 2009
    ..These results demonstrate that both historical and environmental factors play a significant role in structuring modern primate communities; yet, the importance of environmental factors depend on the region in question...
  3. doi request reprint Testing Bergmann's rule and the resource seasonality hypothesis in Malagasy primates using GIS-based climate data
    Jason M Kamilar
    Department of Anthropology, Yale University, New Haven, CT Department of Anatomy, Midwestern University, Glendale, AZ, USA
    Am J Phys Anthropol 147:401-8. 2012
    ..Our findings are in contrast to some previous studies that have suggested resource and climate related effects on body mass, though these studies have examined this question at different taxonomic and/or geographic scales...
  4. pmc Is group size related to longevity in mammals?
    Jason M Kamilar
    Department of Anthropology, Yale University, New Haven, CT 06520, USA
    Biol Lett 6:736-9. 2010
    ..Artiodactyls living in large groups may exhibit higher rates of extrinsic mortality because of being more conspicuous to predators in open habitats, resulting in shorter lifespans...
  5. pmc The climatic niche diversity of malagasy primates: a phylogenetic perspective
    Jason M Kamilar
    Department of Anthropology, Yale University, New Haven, Connecticut, USA
    PLoS ONE 5:e11073. 2010
    ..In this paper, we performed the first investigation of ecological diversity in a phylogenetic context using a mammalian adaptive radiation, the Malagasy primates...

    Jason M Kamilar
    Department of Anthropology, Yale University, New Haven, CT 06520 8277, USA
    Am J Phys Anthropol 144:131-9. 2011
    ..Our results suggest that communities are nonrandomly structured and may be the result of greater levels of interspecific competition between frugivores compared to folivores...
