Project

Optimal spatial movement strategies in foraging among free-ranging Japanese macaques (Macaca fuscata)
I am interested in assessing how individual and social factors influence optimal route decisions in foraging within a group of free-ranging Japanese macaques (Macaca fuscata). I am especially interested in how disability (in the form of congenital limb malformations, CLMS), lifestage and sex might vary decision strategies; and, whether, compensatory behaviours emerge.
