Wednesday, June 25, 2014

PhD candidate India Schneider-Crease collects a urine sample from Talisman, a male gelada baboon (seen sitting on the rock to her right) in the Simien Mountains National Park, Ethiopia.

Schneider-Crease’s research examines tapeworm infections in gelada populations in order to identify the factors contributing to tapeworm susceptibility, and how tapeworm infections affect fitness.
