My name is Claire Coulson, I am the Director of CERCOPAN and have worked for the organisation since January 2007. I spend my time between Calabar HQ and Rhoko our bush site.

We can provide thousands of adults and children with the environmental education needed to encourage respect for wildlife and habitats and to make the primate pet trade ...
that has an effect on the current or future behaviour of another animal. The study of animal communication, sometimes called Zoosemiotics (distinguishable from anthroposemiotics , the study of human communication) has played an important part in the methodology of ethology , sociobiology , and the study of animal cognition . Animal communication, and indeed the understanding of the animal world in general, is a rapidly growing field, and even in the 21st century so far, many prior understandings related to diverse fields such as personal symbolic name use, animal emotions , animal culture and learning , and even sexual conduct , ...
Language Log: Monkey words
Researchers taping calls of the putty-nosed monkey in the forests of Nigeria may have come a small step closer to understanding the origins of human language. The researchers have heard the monkeys string two alarm calls into a combined sound with a different meaning, as if forming a word, Kate Arnold and Klaus Zuberbühler report in the current issue of Nature. In the third paragraph, Wade sets the stage in an informative and sensible way: Monkeys are known to have specific alarm calls for different predators. Vervet monkeys have one call for eagles, another for snakes and a third for leopards. But this seems a far cry from ... market research, surveys and trends
News and Events | University of St Andrews
St Andrews' researchers Dr Klaus Zuberbühler and Kate Arnold studied putty-nosed monkeys in Nigeria, where they recorded monkeys combining distinct alarm calls in particular ways to convey different meanings.  The new findings challenge the notion that combining signals was an essential step in the evolution of human language, emerging late as a response to a growing repertoire. Dr Zuberbühler, of the University's School of Psychology, said, "Our research has revealed some interesting parallels in the vocal behaviour of forest monkeys and this crucial feature of human language." At some point, according ... market research, surveys and trends

Why aren't there any green mammals? - Yahoo! Answers
No one knows for sure. Mammals are overwhelmingly earth-colored - mousy, you could say. A few sort-of-green mammals do exist: Tree sloths turn grayish-green when algae grows on their fur. Australia's ringtail opossums have bands of black and yellow on their hair that can look a grizzled olive drab. You could argue that a diatom-encrusted whale is green. But nonmammal tree frogs, praying mantises and parakeets are all luminous, unapologetic greens. Green vegetation fills the natural world, and many of its denizens use green as camouflage. Why not mammals? The short answer is that mammals are hairy. Mammalian hair has ...
Does anyone here remember a record called "Nutty Numbers"
I was very little when that was popular and it was sung by Jim Stafford. Could "The Monster Mash" have been on that same record? There was another one from that same time that might not have been a novelty song called "Little Willy" by Sweet. I haven't heard it in years. And of course, whou could forget "The Streak" also from roughly that time. Ah, the innocence of childhood (and the pain of old age). I found a link that lists that Nutty Numbers LP but I can't tell what's on it: I don't remember this song, but I ...
