Orangutans

6831250-3x2-700x467The first trans-Atlantic edition of Significance contains a paper by Kerrie Mengersen on her recent work in the jungles of Borneo, analysing a survey among villagers about the populations of orangutans and the evolution patterns of those populations. I knew Kerrie was involved in this study in the past years, but it is nice to seecover the outcome in such a clear format. I am looking forward the technical aspects of the spatial analysis that allows for a better understanding of the population patterns and of their dynamics. (The title of the paper is great as well: “The sound of silence: listening to the villagers to learn about orangutans”.)
