About Mono Chorongo

We are PhD candidates in the Department of Anthropology at the University of Texas at Austin and broadly interested in the behavior and ecology of Neotropical primates. We currently study lowland woolly monkeys in Amazonian Ecuador to better understand grouping dynamics, ranging behavior, male-female relationships, and female mating strategies in this somewhat understudied taxon. As our studies progress, we aim to link relative content to the website and provide updates through our blog, including code used in data analyses and updates from our work at our field site in Tiputini, Ecuador.
