Please join us in welcoming Dr. Lynne Isbell, Professor and Chair, Department of Anthropology, University of California, Davis.
Dr. Lynne Isbell studies primates to understand them as mammals, as members of ecological communities, and as building blocks to our own behavior. She focuses on their behavior and ecology, but she is also interested in their evolutionary history. Natural history and fieldwork are her preferred guides for greater understanding. Professor Isbell has published on a number of topics, including predation, food competition, dispersal, the ecology of social relationships, the evolution of group living, the evolution of bipedalism, and the origin of primates.
