Study about feeding ecology of primates in Southeast Asia
Date:2010/10/16 - 2010/12/18
I visited seven sites of three countries in Southeast Asia (Indonesia, Thailand, and Viet Nam) in which wild studies of wild/semi-wild primate has been done, in order to find a good own study site for feeding ecology of the primates, (mainly Cercopithenine).
My activity during the survey is as follows.
Oct 17-Nov16: I stayed in Indonesia and visited three study sites in Jawa (Pangandaran NP) and Sulawesi (Karenta NR and Tangkoko NR).
I observed moor macaques, black macaques, Sulawesi tarsier, silver lutung and crab-eating macaques there.
Nov 17-30: I stayed in Thailand and visited two study sites (Khao Yai NP and Khao Krapuk NR).
I observed pig-tailed macaques, stump-tailed macaques, and white-handed gibbon there.
Dec 1-16: I stayed in Viet Nam and visited two study sites.
I tried to find Douc langurs, but because of bad weather and steep topography, I could see them slightly.
Besides, on Oct 17, I had a presentation as invited speaker at Manado University, northern Sulawesi.
Silvered lutung (Trachypithecus auratus)
Pig-tailed macaque (Macaca nemestrina)
Stump-tailed macaque (Macaca arctoides)
